Hello! I just got a Black Moor this week, and her name is Velvet. She usually spends most of her time scavenging the small coloured rocks at the bottom, looking for food. Since she is getting used to her new surroundings, she is starting to swim up to the surface. I always leave the air pump on. (I even leave it on in my sleep!) The only time I turn it off is when it is time to clean her bowl.
I love my Black Moor!

Any thing you put into the aquarium they will attack, even your fingers and it does not feel good, they bite rather hard.

Just for those of you who dont know Black Moorss do change colour with age. usually to gold from black. My boyfriend has had his black moor Joe for 5 years now he is huge about 3" wide and 6" long. He has spent his whole life in a 30 gallon tank. I just bought him some new friends, another black moor Jenkins, and a plecko billy. they all seen to be growing very fast. Hopefully I can get some sharks soon for my salt water tank.

Hi my name is Shaun Gillis and I live in chicoppe mass. I have a 55 gal tank with two 8 month jack dempsys, 1 stripped raphael, 1 spotted raphael, 1 red tailed shark, 1 zebra lobster, 1 mustered pleco, 2 med. sized plecos, a green with yellow spots pleco, 2 yello marbled squeaker catfish, a small fiddler crab, 1 two colored bango catfish, and 1 snail.
Now with all those fish they get along fine. But the big dempsey is about 5 to 6 inches long and looks like he is digging to the bottom of the glass. Now both of the dempsys are hiding in the left side of my tank and all other fish stay on the right side off the tank. They are very shy now only come out for food and at night.
Do you think they are going to mate and if so what fish do I have to get rid of, some other fish. The dempseys had a third dempsey with them but they tried to kill him, so I got rid of him. Also... info on breeding angelfish, I also have a 29 gal. PS thanks

I have had my 4 Tin Foil Barbs for 6 months or so, and they have grown almost 6 inches! They are very hardy fish, good eaters, and fun tank mates. I currently have the barbs, 15 diamond tetras, a ropefish, 2 clown loaches, fiddler crab, and a pictus catfish in a 75 gallon tank. One additional note: these guys eat so much you have to be creative with their food to keep form going broke. I have a planted tank, and instead of throwing away plants that get too big, or any clippings i take from them, I feed them to the barbs. Also they love liver, which is really cheap at the supermarket. Cut up a beef liver into small squares, and throw them in the freezer. The barbs will love these.
Chris

I have 2 black moors and a goldfish in a tank together. I have had them for about a year now. The weirdest thing happened though. I had the two black moors first. Then I added a goldfish about the same size as them to the tank a few months later. Ever since then the black moors scales started changing colors and now one is completely gold, with only black around his eyes.(kinda looks like he has eyeliner on) Any way, they are great pets, they swim around a lot and are easy to care for.

My two gourami grew real fast and big in my small fish pond. In two years they grew from about 4 ins to more than 12 inches. They are really sociable and live harmoniously with the many ordinary koi fish and flower horns. I added another two small ones, and like wise they grew to the same sizes. They like the koi pellets, and occasionally I saw them jumping and nipping at leaves located just above the water.
