I just purchased a Black Moor today, and have named him/her Shadow. This is my first experience caring for fish, and I'm like an excited new mommy. I think the Black Moors are just so stinkin' cute, and this fish seems to be really cool, not afraid of anything. I'm beginning to wonder though if I should have named him Hoover, for his vacuum-like qualities. I also purchased a companion goldfish (species unknown) for Shadow, and named it Saint. It's white with red on top of his head and dorsal fin. Saint is a little skittish, but I'm sure he'll warm up to me once he figures out that I feed him! I've had them about 3 hours, and find myself hypnotically watching them. I'm sure I'll find myself wondering how I could have missed out on this for so long!

I have had a Black Moor for 8 months, called 'Suzy'. She was tiny when I purchased her and is now nearly 4 inches in length and well fat! I have just purchsed another one this weekend, whom we have named 'Sonny'. He is a little toddler but such a quick learner as he already knows when it is feeding time. I would recommend to anyone to get a Black Moor as Suzy has so far lived through several bouts of Cotton Wool fungus and now looks amazing!

I bought a black moor this weekend. when I came home I noticed that he's got only one eye! although he looks pretty strange he acts like a normal fish. The problem is that his only eye is a bit blurry. I heard that their eyes can pop... I hope that's just a joke 'cause Captain one-eye can't miss another one!

We have a big black moor in our aquarium, named E.T., measuring about 5 inches from tail to nose. I know this site says that they only grow to 4 inches, but the lady at the petstore said that E.T. might double in size if he keeps on living. He got really really sick and his scales fell off and he turned all white and red, but he managed to stay alive. Be careful! Ours ate one of our neon tetras! Just one big gulp was all it took.

I just got a Black Moor yesterday for my birthday & he's so great. He's like the cutest ever. I call him Fishy Poo Poo & I'm hoping to get him a companion in the summer.

We have 2 black moors, which we refer to as 'pigs'. They waddle around the tank, and have recently taken to 'sitting' on the bottom of the tank, although 1 sits flat and the other on his head. They are very funny to watch, especially when they are doing barrel rolls in the tank, or pushing the larger goldfish out of the way for food! When they both developed white spots on the head, we thought they were ill, but have recently discovered this indicates they are both male.
