Hi, I'm Tia and I won a fish at a recent birthday party. I don't really know exactly when to feed it and when to clean the tank. I went and searched on the net for more information cause i don't want it to die. Yeah, im kinda young but my father says that if i take good enough care of it then I will be able to get more. I named my fish Bell. It's pretty good so far. I don't know if it is a boy or girl. That's the only one I have so it is kinda lonely.

My boyfriend and I just bought Phil, our new Black Moor fish a few days ago. I must say that even though he's just a type of goldfish, he's one of the most interesting fish i have ever seen. The first day or two that he was in the tank, all the other fish kind of stayed away from him and he was all by himself. now i dont know if it was because of his big puffy eyes, his size, or just the fact that he was the "new guy". He's doing just fine now and is having lots of fun with everyone else in the tank.

I have loved blackmoors ever since i saw them many years ago. I have had my current one for over a year and have named him Finlay the second, as i have had one called finlay before. He is very entertaining and i keep him with loads of guppies (most are young from my female guppies0, 2 neon tetras, two white cloud minnows, and a sarasa comet whom he usually swims besides and the two chase each other playfully.

I recently purchased a Black Moor, already have 4 common goldfish and one Red Lion Head ("Fat Head"). I love "Moor Money." He's super sweet and he knows how to get my attention. The corner of his tank faces my desk, so, when hungry or wanting attention, he wiggles his massive eyes in the corner up and down until I feed him.

I just purchased a Black Moor a couple of days ago. He thinks he is a SALMON!!!! He keeps swimming against the current of the water bubbles from the filter. Its like a game he is playing. He has actually managed to make it to the top of the water and pop his head out, then relaxes and floats back down to the bottom, only to do it all over again. I bought him and a gold fantail at the same time. When he is not pretending to be a salmon, he is swimming alongside his new friend.

I got a Black Moor a few days ago. I named him Kai because he is cool! I know a kinda cool thing to do with your Black Moor. You can put a small bit of flake food on your pointer finger and let the black moor see it first and then you put it near the Black Moor's mouth, it will eat the food from your finger. if your fish has a GIGANTIC mouth don't do it!
