i just bought a black moor today and i named him Thor. He's a pretty cool fish. He also scavenges the bottom of the tank for food instead of eating it at the top. But he does go to the top and make kissing noises and blows bubbles, so hes pretty funny and entertaining. He's a beast to, he already knocked over a synthetic plant 4 times his size!

i have a black moor. i have had her for like 5 years. this fish is so funny. she eats rocks and spits them back out. she eats her own poop some times, i dont know if this is a black moor thing or just hers (frita). i recommend getting one of these fish if you have a habit of not feeding your fish because they can go like a week without food, and they will live forever.

My Blackmoor is in with two run of the mill goldfish. He doesn't get the food from the top at all. Just sucks from the bottom.

Black Moors, like most other fancy varieties of goldfish, will grow larger than 4 inches. If genetics and care are right, they can grow to be 10" or more. If a full grown goldfish is only 4", it is stunted.

I have purchased a black about 3 inches long. I was hoping it would grow to maybe 6 or 8 inches, but I guess they just don't do that. Baby is in an 1800 gal outside pond and seems to be doing well. I have 20 or so larger goldfish, but Baby seems to be holding his own.
Hope it continues. Beb

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!
