Pond / Pyracantha


I was wondering if anyone would know if pyracantha berries are poisonous to fish.  We have one close to the pond which i would rather not move if they aren't poisonous.

Thanks in advance.

    The Bottom Line

    Pyracantha is an evergreen shrub often used in landscaping. The shrub typically has plentiful orange-red berries and needle-like thorns. The berries have not been shown to be toxic to animals or humans, although swallowing large amounts might cause some mild stomach upset.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
