We have a colony of blue dolphins and they are very bosy and think they are the kings of our 8ft tank. They are beautiful fish and keep the tank looking lively.

    So there is no really way to tell the male and female apart. What about their anal fins, on most fish you can tell. Males have sharp points and females have rounded anal fins. Can you tell the blue moori that way to.

    I don't know if there are specialty or show fish of this breed but a normal price at That Pet Place for this species is $10-15 US

I like fish but turtles are better.

    You can have both - probably not in the same place.

I agree with the comments, they are a very nice addition to any tank as long as it is a good size one. I have 3 of them but mine are very peaceful. Once in a while they will have a run in with one of the other members of the tank, but most of my fish keep to themselves, and mine is a mixed tank, a very mixed thank. I have species that are not supposed to be together.

I just got a blue dolphin and it is very territorial. I have one very bossy red zebra and it showed him what's what. They are really nice and well priced.

I have three 3 inch blue moorii mixed with many other fish in 55 gallon tank. They are so cute and beautiful! I can't wait until they grow up to be even more beautiful! Rumor said that they are slow in growth rate, but I dont care about that as long as they live happily and healthy. I will love them forever!
