Black Moor Goldfish
The Black Moor Goldfish is basically a black version of the Telescope Goldfish, though the eyes usually don't protrude as far as they do on the Telescope!

I have had my Black Morr, Macbeth, for a few months and everything was going great. He originally had a tank mate, a spotted calico, but she died and he was doing fine by himself. Then one of his eyes started to cone out and get cloudy, he stopped eating. Now his other eye has started the same thing and they both look like they might explode. He has stopped swimming actively like he used to and floats in one spot. I am pretty sure he is blind, though I don't know what happened. The lady at the pet store said it sounded like a fungal infection and gave me medicine to administer once a day. It doesn't same to be working! Is he blind? Can somebody help me? What do I do with a blind fish? I was planing on getting him a friend, but not if it will worsen his condition.... PLease Help!!!
Listen, many of your goldfish are mating. If a male pushes a female into a plant, it means they are mostlikely to have eggs. They only do this when they are about 4in. long. If they are being injured it means they are not compatible, with the fish killing it. HOPE THIS HELPS!
Never, never ever! handle a brand new goldfish with a fish net unless it likes and is used to it's environment. This could result in stress and fish could also get a rare disease. Take good care of your goldfish! and take my advice. I got over excited and wanted to look at it, so I grabbed it with my net and the next day my favorite fish was in the fish bowl in the sky.
Hi, I had a black moor then it's eyes got really big, then they fell out and he died.
I recently purchased a small Black Moor at the local Wal-Mart. My daughter quickly named him Marley after watching the dog movie only tens of times. Anyway, we took Marley out of the bowl to clean it and he got hung in the net. After gently removing him and completing the cleaning, he is only hanging around the top and swims only limited amounts. Be careful, their pointed fins get caught easily in netting.
I can appreciate this as I had 2 black moors too. One was bigger than the other. The smaller one died soon after the bigger one was chasing it round the tank. The one that is left is growing bigger and is developing grey scales and a gold stomach. Don't know what is going on!
I have had my black moor now for almost a year. His name is Vader and he has almost tripled in size since I bought him. He is so big now he's starting to bully my other fish. I am not sure what to do because he's one of my favorites. He eats everything and before I read up on them, I would have never known they had troubles seeing cause he chases the same fish all day long!
The day I wrote this is on 22-3-2009, Its the Big Day and the sad Day.... Adwerd and Iricse are 1 months old, with Fintail and 2 Ryukins, Une and Lordy. But, recently Adwerd and Lordy are sick, fighting maybe! Poor fish! Adwerd died on its Full Moon Party and I buried her near the flowerbed. Lordy is having problems, its not long for it to live. Pls pray that it will be alright!
I was given a Black moor for my birthday yesterday. I named him BJ as he was given to me at the BJ's Brewery restaurant for my birthday. I put BJ with my other fish and the other fish beat him up horribly. I believe he may be blind in one eye! His eye looks popped and his top fin is shredded and has a silvery looking gash on his side. Poor guy! He didn't even last an hour in there! I had to pull him out of the tank and get a separate little tank to put in my office. So far he looks happy. Let's all hope BJ hangs in there!
I'm back again! My 2 black moors, Adwerd and Iricse, are almost 1 month old in my tank. Almost 2 weeks ago, I bought another Black Moor. I named it Fintail, although its not a fintail goldfish. I am sure this was female, because its vent is convex and rounder, and bigger than the others, 3.5 inches I think. As I put it in the tank, Iricse keeps chasing her around the tank. It is a mistake, Iricse is too young! But some sites said if you put a female into a group of fish, the male will chase it and the females will show no interest. So I think that Fintail and Adwerd are females, and Iricse is male! I have to switch their names around, but NOT! LOL! They're very happy and energetic!
