Please help! My black moor fish blackie has been swimming at the top of the tank, acting as if he's not getting air. It seems he has some white coloration on him-not saltlike spots-more of a cottony white film so to speak. He lives with his friends tiger-a common goldfish and freckles a shubunkin goldfish. Those two are fine. Please help me fix blackie. He is eating fine, :(

Hi my black moor ( Story ) is a handful so we are considering an aquarium but I have no idea what fish to put with her. I don't want her to get eaten so which fish are the best with her?

THANKS!

    The best tank-mates for your black moor would be other fancy goldfish and other cold-water fish that won't compete for food.

    Hi, when and where is the club, if you start one I would be interested as I love fish, especially the black moor and telescope goldfish. Thank you.

As my black moor has grown, it has remained black on the fins and back, but is increasingly orange on the belly. The notes I read indicated that a higher temperature can cause this and is it reversible if the temperature is lowered? How low? The 50-gallon tank has been kept at 74 degrees.

    I recently bought a black Moor and within 2 months his body is turning copper, my temp. is 68-70. What's the deal? He's not very pretty orangey/copper. Is there a verity that is easier to keep that nice black color?

    The biggest factor in the color of a goldfish is its bloodline. There is a 100% chance that the black will go away if the bloodline was unstable to begin with.

PLZ, PLZ, PLZ, do Not keep goldfish in a bowl! Get it a ten gallon aquarium with good filteration plz. If u like your fish the rule is 10 gallon per fish, and trust me, even if lfs employees told you it's alright in a bowl, it's not! Do not squeeze your goldfish if you are a beginner, rather get a male and a female, do it naturally. When I breed my goldies I simply add ice to the tank at night. When the ice melts and the water becumes warmer the urge to merge will come automatically to your fish. Keep a look out for eggs on plants and plant decorations. If you do find eggs, remove them immediately as the parents will eat it. Place in a container with an airstone and wait till they hatch. Feed your fry bbs and crushed up flakes until they get bigger.

Hope this helpe

    Can you breed goldfish if they are not the same breed, and does putting ice in the water really help breed them?

    That's a lot of good advice I'll keep this info in mind for future problems. But how do you know if its a boy or a girl?

    Your fish sick so you take your fish in a different bowl or aquarium and give him-her green medicine ok.

    Do you have him in a bowl? If so that may be the problem. But may not be I have had my fish for a year in a bowl. And don't worry he is fine my fish does that too:)

We have two Black Moor goldfish and three regular goldfish and they all get along really well. My son loves to feed the fish and he alerts me when he thinks something is not right. The other day he told me he had seen some white stuff on one of the Black Moors, so I took a look. On the tail of the smaller of the two there was white stuff, like cotton. I had never seen anything like that, so I researched it and came upon this site. Thanks to this site, I was able to treat my goldfish and save their lives!

    Cool well I had a smaller goldfish I thought that thy would get along good. Then I came to the house on Monday and the goldfish was dead. I think that bubbles the black moor ate all of his food.

I recently got two black moors (Albert and Harry) and its coming to the time to clean them out. However I am slightly worried as I know that their eyes damage easily and I would like to know the best way to keep them whilst they are out the tank and how to get them to that place.

    I think in your fish tank some bad fishes who injured your black moore so take care all your fishes and give him green medicine.
