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 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!

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!

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!
