Toxic cyanobacteria blue-green algae can occur in lakes and ponds of all sizes, and can be dangerous or fatal to fish, wildlife, pets, and even humans. Toxic cyanobacteria harmful algae blooms are most common in ponds that have excessive nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus which can be caused by runoff, animal waste, failing septic tank systems, natural aquatic plant decay, and other sources.

When these extra nutrients end up in your pond, algae growth is stimulated, resulting in an algae blooms.

Effects of Cyanobacteria Blue-Green Algae Blooms on Pets and Animals

Cyanobacteria produce compounds that are toxic to animals, including pets and humans. These toxins include cylindrospermopsins, microcystins, anatoxins, and saxitoxins. Microcystins are part of the hepatotoxins family which affects the liver.  Anatoxins and saxitoxins are neurotoxins, which affect the nervous system.

Pond Filtration: Reducing & Eliminating Harmful Nutrients

pond water filtration aeration productsPond filtration and aeration are important components in reducing the nutrients upon which harmful algae blooms grow and thrive. Biological filtration combined with beneficial bacteria help remove harmful pollutants and nutrients, helping to starve blue-green algae blooms, duckweed, and other nuisance aquatic plants, resulting in a clean, healthy pond.

Our Country Pond Filter is an effective recirculating pond filtration system that supports beneficial bacteria. When nutrient-rich pond water flows into the filter, available ammonia, nitrates, phosphorous and other nutrients are reduced through biological pond filtration and treatment.
