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.
HI! My wife and I have had our Black Moor now for over 4 years! It's name is Darth Vader. He is over 7 inches from head to tail. He was black and about an inch when we bought him. He is now Black, Orange and clear color on his fins. Very beautiful colors! We keep him in a 10 gallon tank with smooth decor (A bubble car and a Sign) and run 2 dyno flow filters and a huge bubble bar.
He seems to love his environment, and has done great in a 10 gal tank. I know he is getting old, I call his clear tip fins grey hair! we keep him at room temperature and feed him 2 times a day (Morning then evening) and he is a smart booger!
Enjoy your moore! They are an exceptional pet! Treat the tank with care and your Moor will live a long time....
May the force be with you!

I have recently gotten 2 Black moors and put them in a tank with 12 different types of Gold Fishes. During Feeding these two are not competitive to get food, so every time, I have to take them out from the tank to feed. How I should feed them in the tank along with other fishes.
I thought my black moor goldfish, Gamma, was sick. But thanks to this site I realized he is a healthy, happy, fish. Thank you!
