Effects of nitrates on koi and other fish
Unfortunately the first signs of nitrates being too high in your water can be your fish suffering or getting ill. Nitrates can enter a fish’s blood stream via its gills. This can lead to a condition known as Brown Blood. This happens when nitrates are at high enough levels that they can affect the fish’s haemoglobin in its blood reducing its ability to carry oxygen. When nitrates combine with haemoglobin it will turn the fishes blood from rich red to brown. The lack of oxygen will lead to a deterioration of the health of the fish as it slowly suffocates.
High nitrate levels have also been linked with damage to major organs in fish including their nervous system, kidneys, liver and spleen. Damage to any of these can severely shorten a fish’s life expectancy
What causes nitrate in water
Nitrates are created when ammonia produced by fish is broken down by bacteria in the pond. Ammonia itself is more harmful than nitrates and for this reason nitrates can easily be overlooked by pond owners. While aquatic plants can remove nitrates from a pond, high nitrate levels may require a quicker solution such as the targeted bacteria in Nitrate Klear.
