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 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!
Hi, I just bought a black moor and I'm trying to figure out whether they are bottom-feeders. I don't know whether it is male or female, so I named it tumor.
A few months ago I bought a black moor which I have since dubbed "Shogun" So far he has learned quickly from my comet goldfish "Cosmo" to come up and eat the food from my fingers. Just a few days ago I bought a new buddy for them, who is a orange and black fantail who in body shape looks similar to my black moor I rightfully named him "Geronimo" because he has a black streak going up the center of his head and three black spots on his right side. I love my gold fish and have kept them since I was about sixteen they are indeed fun to watch and have personalites all their own.
I have a 6 year old black moor goldfish who is the LAZIEST fish I've ever owned. He was originally in a little 5gal, and as he has grown so have his tanks. He ALWAYS has prefered sitting on the bottom of the tank. Probably because he manages to hurt himself when he swims. Over the years I have rescued him from the filter system (making one eye larger than the other), later from an ornamental log he was stuck in for a couple of days (making the other eye blind and blood shot). He is currently the size of my fist and is a brilliant gold/orange color with black tipped fins. He lives in a 105gal tank happily laying on his side on the bottom. He has 4 healthy fat tank mates who all swim normally, although my fantail will sit with him to keep him company, and from time to time you will see him haphazardly swim around for excercise. So I have chalked all this up to pure laziness, and PERHAPS a damaged swim bladder due to his near death experiences through the years.
I anticipate him being around for years to come. If anything, he makes for interesting conversation with guests.
Hi! I am 13 yrs old and I have just bought 2 black moors on 22-2-2009. I simply give them names, although I can't tell which is male and female. Adwerd has a dimmer belly than Iricse, which has a shiny golden yellow belly...
The only problem is I want them to breed. I had see some info about how to tell the sex of goldfish, but it doesn't help. So, I am now waiting for the breeding season, if lucky, I will have more Black Moors...
I have have had a girl black moor for 3 months and they are known as Carassius auratus auratus and they have poor eye site which enables them not to find food well. They can live for 25 years but the highest recordered was 49 years. They originated from China and were known as the dragon because of there dragon eyes. They grow to a "whopping" 10". They turn a greyish color at an older age. I am a 5th grader an are 11.
I have a 50 gal tank with 4 gold fish and 2 black moors... The tinier moor all of a sudden started floating calmly on his back every so often, Yet he perks right up and can easily right himself for food and other interactions with its tank mates. About two days ago the other black moor also started potraying this strange behavior... They both eat and swim with the others all the time... Yet once in awhile they take to laying on their backs (playing dead).. I don't think they are sick, as other than doing the back stroke they are fine, eat well, and love attention. I just want to make sure they are ok, and not spreading anything to the other fish. And wondering very much if this is normal for them.
