Plants Toxic To Koi

I thought I'd pass along this link about plants that they say are toxic to koi, and presumably also to goldfish. They tell which parts of the plants are the problem. I can't vouch for the accuracy, but it's something to consider.

Okay, so marijuana is toxic. HHhhhmmmm .... makes me wonder how or should I say what they were doing to find that out? LOL Maybe they were trying to find out if koi could get cotton mouth?

Geez, yeah! If you see your koi swimming around with huge eyes and a big grin, combined with slurry swimming, then you know he was nibbling on a forbidden fruit! :tomuch:

Elephant ears?? I always thought that the purple taro plant is related to the elephant ears, and I have seen them in ponds, including my own, quite a lot. I have one taro plant now in one of my DIY filters just fine. :unsure:
