I bought a black moor about 2 months ago. He was living in a small aquarium with a gold pearlscale goldfish. unfortunately, the pearlscale died :(. Goldie,as i call my black moor (hehe), is generally active, and likes to swim up and down, and has a strange habbit of floating over while swimming and eating stones. At first i was worried he was going down same road as my pearlscale, but i think its just a strange habbit!!

anyways, black moors are great fish to keep, they look beautiful in a light up tank, and brighten up any room, even thought they are black :P

i just got one, named damien. he is an excellent pet and seems awful friendly, although the pleco i keep to the tank clean loves to latch onto him.

I just got my black moor today. He is the neatest thing I have ever seen. I only have one in a five gallon tank. He is so active. I have a filter in it and he will go to where the water comes back in the tank, wiggle and then jumps out of the water!!!! I was worried about this and took his water level down. I named him Harvey. I do hope he is a he. lol Thank you

Black moors are by far my favorite type of pet fish. They are beautiful to watch and have a lot of personality. I've had many over the years, and they've all lived quite a long time. They get along great with calico orandas! They love burrowing in the stones at the bottom of the tank, even if they're not looking for food. They're not really skittish (like some fish) and are pretty calm. I always complain to the staff when I visit Walmart and see Black Moors inside a tank with aggressive tail-nippers! The little girls I baby-sit call them "Black Mambos!" I would recommend Black Moors to anyone who is considering purchasing one!

I got my black moor 3 days ago as a valentines present- the best present EVER. I have called him Milhouse, he is very small and cute but i am a bit worried about him because he seems to love swimming at the top of the tank. I have never had a fish before so this may be normal but one thing's for sure he is SOOO KOOOL. i love Milhouse!

I bought 2 Black Moores and added them to my tank. Within minutes the other goldfish and parrots started picking at them. We were worried but we left them alone. In the morning we found only two white still breathing torsos. Their fins and scales were completely gone!! IT WAS HORRIFIC!! We havent bought them since then.
