    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.

My fish is named Chainsaw and he is the most unfriendly fish there is! He always kills my other fish.

I've just upgraded my fish tank from 2.5 liters to 40 liters with a filter and a air pump. Blackie (black moor) is being odd since sparkles died back in the 2.5 liters bowl from poor water quality. Blackie's dorsal fin and his second pair of fin is clamped. Please tell me whats wrong? Additional info PH is 7.4 the tank model is aqua one 340 pro aqua start includes a light and a filter, air pump model aqua one 2500 I use it for my ornament, the light is pl 50, I feed it flakes and granules currently alone but adding a dragon eye after my vacation for three weeks. I have 1 and half months till I go so please tell me soon.

I love moors, and have never had problems other than with water quality from time to time causing illness... easily cared for. BUT I now have a one eyed BIG guy (blind in one eye from defect) who EATS and BULLYS other fish. He LOVES to eat the algae eaters and snails especially, but has three pygmy frogs to his list and several small goldfish too. ANYONE ever had one of these docile, timid fish turn aggressive?

    OMG....mine is the MOST aggressive fish. He eats any other fish in his tank. I had no intentions of having just one fish but it seems I have no choice. He has NO problems eating and cleans the tank of all food twice a day. And yes, I have to feed him twice a day or he goes nuts. I keep reading online how timid they are and to not place them with aggressive fish but it's all backwards to me. Looks like I'm stuck with just the one because it's too sad to come home and find another fish torn to pieces. Breaks my heart. I had to quit trying.

I bought a Black Moor for the office and we love him! He is so sweet and has really brought our depressing little cubicle spaces to life. However this morning I noticed his eye is either damaged or has an infection. It is kinda swollen and cloudy. I took the rock decoration out of the tank as I just read he could damage his eyes on sharp stuff. I wish the fish people had told me that. Does anyone know what this is--fungus or damaged lens?

    Try looking at the eye problems on the fish diseases page to see if that answers your question. See link below:

    Thanks. I did that and got some medication to put in the water. The next day, however, he looked better and then better the next after that. I never added the meds. Maybe he scraped his eye. He is living by himself. Should I get him a companion?
