I LOVE this breed of fish!!! The eye sacs are SO delicate that GREAT care must be taken to assure there is nothing sharp in a tank (no pointed rocks, shells, drift wood, statues--even firm dead plant stems are a danger)! Likewise, be VERY careful with filters--it is so easy for an eyesac to be "sucked into a filter tube! I cover all my filter openings with fine pieces of nylon cut from old pantyhose; this saves my bubble eyes. My favorite bubble eyes are solid velvet blacks and bright calicos.

I have two Ryunkins, and they are fantastic fish. I have found that mine love to eat frozen brine shrimp, but will eat flakes or pellets. (Hint: soak flakes in a small amount of tank water before feeding to reduce the possibility of swimbladder issues.) If you are thinking about purchasing a Ryunkin, be sure to have a large tank, as these fish grow rapidly. But, they make wonderful pets and are a fun addition to any household!

I purchased my black moor in 1988, and they are still alive in my 10 GAL aquarium. My moor lives with a calico fantail, and they are a pair of old goldfish (theres a difference between a week in a bowl or 16 years in a fish tank). They are supposed to be very long-lived, and should live another 20 years or so. They are very easy to keep, (unless you keep them in a bowl in which they wont survive long), and be careful when handling them, because of their delicate eyes, and dont overdose when treating ich.

I was amazed to find a site like this. Too Cool. I have one wonderful Black Moor, named Hercamer. He is a fish with personality, I am so attached to it, that it got me to thinking of what the lifespan of these fish are?? I have had mine for a couple of years. Does anyone know the lifespan of these fish??? Any info. would be super.......

Happy Fishes...

This is the exact site I was searching for! My first try searching for information about Black Moors-and I got it! I have two Black Moors and I really love them. They are very friendly fish. Every night before I got to sleep I lay on one side and observe them for about 5 minutes and then I go to sleep. Thanks again for creating this site.

I have gotten 2 lion head fish and 2 black moore. They are so cute and I love them a lot. When I bought them they were in the same tank so I figured it would be fine to keep them together. They are all very active and seem to enjoy each other. Their names are (lionheads) R2 and D2; (black moors) Yoda and O-bee. They make great entertainment for everyone who sees them!

I have a new black moor. I didnt name him quite yet since I got him yesterday. He shares the tank with a gold and white fantail gooldfish and a regular calico goldfish. They always hang out in trios. My fantail nips and pushes at the side of my black moor trying to get him to go to the other side of the tank. The calico goes to the other side of the tank to try to show him its ok to go up there! It is VERY funny to watch! I only have one problem with my black moor. When ever i feed them, the fantail and calico eat but not my black moor. I think that he is just a "scaredy fish" because he wont even go into the neon rock i bought! They are ALL just funny to watch together!
