I've had my Black Moor for almost two years. His name is Snoopy = ) He's so hyper, I love it! I baby talk to him and he gets so excited and will follow my finger when I talk to him. He's so much fun! I spoil the heck out of him!

My water must be a bit too warm, my beautiful black moor is 98 percent orange, black eyes and fin tips are black but the rest bright orange, still love him just the same. I have had him for about 2 years now

Hey, I'm about to get a black moor and I'm so excited! I heard they have quite the personality. I don't know what I'm going to name it yet, but I think black ice might be a good name.

I just recently got a new Black moor goldfish and she (I think) is doing well and I proudly named her yuki, meaning tender princess in Japanese. I am so proud!

Hey, I have read all this information and have just gotten two new black moors called coco and louis. I absolutely love them but am worried that the tank is too small. It is about 12 inches in diameter.

I have a Black Moor and a Fantail Goldfish in a 12 gallon eclipse tank. I had lots of problems with the tap water I used. Even with chemicals I got red algae, but the fish still thrived, very hearty. I started using the filtered water from the fridge and still adding chemicals, and the results are fantastic, didn't know my tap water was so bad. So if you are having problems in your tank and chemicals are not working try filtered water. Both fish get along great, I really love to see them sleeping in the back corner of the tank side by side. They get all excited when ever we come over to the tank. Can't say enough good things about the Black Moor.

My Black Moor is 1 1/2 years and is a big fat piggy! He lives in a 20 gal. tank with a Ryukin. Recently he was transported to the pet store. I was having trouble keeping the tank clean so instead of buying bigger the pet store said that I would have to donate them for pond people. I stood there with the two in a big bucket and announced that I didn't like that idea. "What will they do with them come winter", I had asked them. They responded with, well, goldfish are normally just pond fish. Then the gal lifted the blanket off the bucket and said, "These are beautiful. We will make sure that you have credit for these two. I told them an interesting story of how we came to get the goldfish. They took pictures of them. I went back every day for about 5 days. They told me they would be giving me $30-40 for each fish. I missed them but thought that I would start over with babies. I was told that they have gone to shows all over the nation and no one can get the black moor belly so huge and round, very difficult she said. She promised to sell them together and tell the story about them to the new owners. They were also impressed about the size of the ryukin. Then, an appraiser from the store suddenly said that the team cannot try to sell them together and that the most they can give me is $10. So I took them home. Trouble is that the black moor had one foggy eye, which has since cleared up. the other eye looks rusty. I have been trying to read as much as possible. As far as I could tell he wasn't bumped when I brought him home. It has been a week now. He and his buddy are eating and seem happy. I am getting rid of sharks in a 40 gallon aquarium so they will have a bigger playing field. Any suggestions for the eye problem are greatly appreciated. Poor piggy, I send him away and them upon his return there is something bothering his eye. Is there a more velvet net that should be used when moving this type of fish? Please send any comments. Thank you in advance.
