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.

I have a black moor. Whom is very fat haha. I got Bubbles about a month ago. I have a coffin bubbler in my tank, and it'll sit there and wait and ride the bubbles up to the top of the tank. Why, I have no idea. He's what I call my little "dory fish", cuz he doesn't care. He's like dory in finding nemo. "Just keep swimmin". haha. He's in the tank with guppies, a dragonfish (jason), a calico fantail (fancy), a male betta (nemo), female betta (sparkle), 3 goldfish (stripe, spot, and tuna fish), a ghost shrimp (shrimpy), and a small fiddler crab (mr crabs). I think he's the prettiest one in the tank. But they're all beautiful in their own little ways. I love these fish and may get another. Everyone should have at least one considering they get very large and very cute. Careful with large ones and male bettas because they may think it's another betta so just watch them for a while.

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 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!
