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!

I have a black moor fishy called pepper. hes in a samllish tank whith snow (a white goldfish) and carrot (an orange goldfish). but since my comet died (angel) he has been a bit sad because he used to protect angel. she was the smallest and the other two were mean :( now pepper is sick because his poor big eyes i think have been popped. im trying to figure out whats wrong but i will cure him! he's my favourite fish and if he goes then i'll get another black moor. when i get a BIG tank like my dad promised i'll get like 5 black moors hehe!

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.

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
