I personally dont like these goldfish b/c this type ate my other fish (silver mollies...and their fellow goldfish)!! Not the kind of goldfish I would recommend for ppl to get.

I have been keeping and breeding fish for over 18 years now so believe me when I tell you that you all are gonna need much bigger tanks for your irridescent sharks. My 5 year old shark is at least 16" and had to be moved to a pond. One 2500 gal outside pond for summer,(yes I built an elaborate pond on account of 1 big fish) and a 280 gal pond for winter in my basement. The shark now shares his ponds with koi and goldfish. Not the ideal setup ie. tropical mixed with coldwater, but they all have gotten along fine for the last 3 years, no deaths or illness of any kind. The biggest koi, only 3 years old is almost as big as the shark now. The ponds were needed after the shark outgrew my 90 gal tank, the biggest tank I have at this time(not by choice of course). Too many injuries were occurring in the 90 gal, resulting in much scar tissue on his nose.

Our black moors name is Stubs and he is the newest member of our 55 gallon goldfish tank. He is smaller than the other fish but he seems to be fitting in rather nicely. Stubs is the star of the tank. He may be small but he is fiesty and friendly. He does not take any guff from the other fish and he is always swimming with one of the others. He seems to be very social and learns quickly. We got a feeding ring to control their food a bit better and he figured it out before any of the others. Now he is taking food right from my fingers. He is not scared of me at all. He is by far the most entertaining fish I have ever had and I have had many fish.

I got two Black Moors yesterday. I think the dark ones a boy and the silverish ones girl. Anyway their names are Ying and Yang. Yang is very protective over Ying. Yang often will sit on the bubbles from my pump, slowly float to the top of the tank and sink again.

I have 2 jellybean fish. I love watching them rearrange their home. The rocks and plants are moved all the time. They are truly amazing fish.

I JUST BOUGHT MY RAPHAEL. HE IS VERY PRIVATE I SHOULD SAY. I HAVE HAD HIM NOW FOR A WEEK AND ALL HE DOES IS CHILL IN ONE OF MY ORNAMENTS. HE WILL ONLY COME OUT WHEN ALL THE LIGHTS ARE OFF. SO ONLY TIME WILL TELL IF HE WILL BE ONE OF YOUR ALL WONDERFUL STORIES.

We have two of them, the 1st one we got last year was a real baby about 1/2 inch long. About a week later it had a growth spree,it got to be a inch. We then went and got our 2nd one, it too was a baby. we have strange water where we live (we think)because within 2 full months one of them reached 2 1/2inches and the other wasnt too far behind in length. for a bit there, my husband and I thought that the big one was dead several times cause he wouldnt move or anything for several days. We came to learn that was normal for them. we have had these 2 now for a little over a year. the 1 first one is over 5 inches long and during its growth we suspect it was the S.O.B that ate our rosey barbs & cherry barbs, as a means of a late night snack attack! the 2nd one is just chilling on the growth thing for now we think! We have a 50 gal bow front with a wide vareity of fish in it(3 bala sharks, 1 tinfoil barb, 2 cory cats, 1 pictus cat, 1 8"upside down cat (named pete: he is all black, no dots or anything, never seen one like pete before, and we have a pleco, lacydontus, and 2 shubunkins. they all enjoy themselves and get along nicely.
