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.

Well my black moor Fred died tonight. He had been sitting in the bottom of the aquarium for a few days and tonight he floated to the top and over on its side. I don't know what happened to him. I think maybe one of the other fishes in the tank might have been picking on him. He had one of his front fins missing and he was no longer velvety looking but gold in many spots. I loved my Fred , he was the most entertaining one to watch in the tank.

my black moors name is clayburn. I call him clay for short. Every morning I put my finger in the top of the fish tank and clayburn comes and suckles my finger. as of late, he has only been dwelling in between two rocks and his skin is starting to become gold, not all black.
