My husband just bought me 2 Black Moors for christmas. Im so excited. We saw them while shopping for tank mates for our 2 red-ear slider baby turtles and I fell in love with them. Needless to say, they ARE NOT with my turtles (we got bleeding heart tetras for that), but are in 40gal tank by themselves. I just wanted to Thank everybody posting here, you all have been such a help in getting their tank ready and learning to care for them. Ive never had fish before, only turtles and dogs, haha. Im pretty sure I have a male and female, and am keeping a close eye on them. any tips or clues would be greatly appreciated. Thanx again.....

I just transferred my new moor, Mr. Googly Eyes into a new tank. But I think he is in shock~ :( is he gonna pull through? I think the water difference was too drastic.

I have a Black Moor named "Buggy" cuz of his bug eyes. he loves his tank. I do see the omnivore thing 2 months ago, I had another goldfish, "Crazy" in with him. Crazy died 1 day, and Buggy swam up to him and started to sorta nudge - eat him.

Hi! OMG I just got the CUTEST black more today! she is adorable! but I don`t know what to call her. I was thinking ZULU or BUBA and yes if your asking, I do know it's a girl coz the boys are slimmer! and she's a big girl! But today I didn't really think about the size of the fishbowl so I got one that holds from 3 liters to 4 liters! Will that do for now ,in a month or two I might get a boy! so I'll get a bigger one with a filter! xoxo

So, this is in response to Laylovv I purchased a black moor 3 years ago from Wal Mart of all places, cleaned his bowl (yes BOWL) twice a month, and did not have any antibiotics. He lived for over three years in those conditions, and when I purchased him, I bought him with a calico and a fan tail. I had them all in the same bowl and he attacked THEM so bad that I had to purchase a second bowl for them to reside in so that he could live alone. Then, they died about 3 weeks later (which was REALLY depressing). He outlived any other fish that I've had except a Betta I had for 6 years. All that to say, you Can keep them in bowls, and don't NEED a filter for them. They're a GREAT starter fish as long as you keep them by themselves or with another black moor. I loved my dearest Proteus and I'm very sad I had to flush him.

I have had a Black Moor for 3 yrs. Now it's huge! I feed him fish flakes and fish pellets daily. Also I have found that in order to keep them 100 percent nonsick and to not have the orange, is to remove the top cap of the tank. Make sure the water is 60 to 70 degrees farenheit. Finally, make sure the tank is getting sunlight (from a closed window) and wait a couple months. I found this when my tank's cap was broken.

I have had my black moor "Bug-eyes" for a few months now...my favorite treat to give him are thawed out frozen peas! It is awesome to watch him scavange around for it! I just upgraded his home to a 10 gallon all to himself; so far he seems to enjoy

I have a black moor and I love her so much. She's the cutest thing and she loves playing in the current of my filter!
She is paired in a tank with a comet goldfish, they get along really well and I'm so happy to own fish, they're such a wonder!
