    This is very similar to the lists of plants poisonous to pond fish that have been circulating around the internet for years.
    As is typical with the internet, much of what is included on these lists is anecdotal which certainly cannot be relied on for scientific accuracy.

    I think they are just links to toxic plant sites. I've looked at a few and can't find WH or Waterlilies listed.

    In some rare occasions lay persons may know more that experts and as I already stated I talked to a nursery owner which told me not to use lilies hyacinth or lotus

    And the nursery owner was correct as they were likely referring to the terrestrial plants and not the aquatic plants with similar names. Most nursery owners know very little about aquatic plants because they don't deal with them on a regular basis and they don't sell them.

    One site out of all of the links that you have posted list Water Hyacinth as poisonous to Cocker Spaniels. Hardy overwhelming support of what you claim. Since this site is owned and managed by a layperson who, from their own bio, has no formal training in veterinary medicine, Anything read here has to be considered anecdotal. Hardy 100% reliable.

    I guess I'm a little confused - if you already have sources that you trust for information regarding pet-toxic plants, then what are you asking us to provide? Why not just check your trusted sources? Or google "pet safe plants". Since you already told us you know how to google.

    You are an oddly aggressive first time poster.

    I missed this one. You are just obnoxious all the way around I guess. Anyone who claims to love animals but is rude to humans has their priorities mixed up. Or so the university experts tell me.

    i dont think we shud drag this and b disrespectful to each other , they may b harmful as some sources said or may not be but if we avoid where we have doubt we wud b safer rather then risking? we will not have disadvantage if we leave doubtful things . apart from the discussion of its toxicity , if i heard some thing is bad for my fish even if its false il have it in back of my mind , i will b careful if i have substitutes i will prefer other things isnt it? i think thats what luscious andria trying to say

    I would agree. @luscious775 as you are new to the forum I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, but please make sure you read our Forum Etiquette page (link in my signature).
