Just today I went out and got a Moor! I named him Xanthan (or Xan, and he's got this really nice little gold-ish tint to his black scales. At the present we're keeping him in a small bowl until we move; then we'll get a nice hexagonal bowl with a plate or under gravel feeder. I think he's the greatest!

We have bettas, but they're often too proud to be your friends. I plan on teaching him to eat from my fingers-I love my Xan!

I just received a black moor goldfish for a birthday present and it is ridiculously adorable. My fish's name is Cherica and has a weird habit of putting it's lips to the top of the fish bowl and making smacking noises, it's really cute!

I have a black moor named yang, and she's awesome! Unfortunatley, my roommates turtle attacked her...she seems to be ok...but has very little tail left, and her top fin is split. she's a real trooper, though, and now (a few hrs. later) she's swimming and eating (and pooping)! Black moore's are the greatest!

Our aquarium is my husband's hobby, not mine, but I always stop by the fish tanks at the store - just to look. When I spotted the black moor, I put my face near the tank to get a better look and I swear, that fish interacted with me! He oggled me, acted all cute, and said "take me home"... so I did. Since my husband's Oscar died, our Calico Fantail was all alone and "Moory" immediately became best friends it. Now that I have a fish of my own, I decided to do some sprucing up in the tank and whenever I put my hand in there to move something around, Moory swims right up to me and nibbles my fingers. He allows me to touch him. The 3rd day, he was taking food from my fingers. We just love him!

I laughed at Laurens comment here, our moors doesn't see the food at the top either! The fantail is eating away and Moory knows there's food but he can't figure out where it is. He gets all excited like "where'd mine? where's mine?" I didn't know they had poor eyesight.

Now I'm looking for more peaceful, friendly fish. I think I have just found a new hobby. :)

Got Milo last wednesday, tried him in a goldfish pond but he didnt seem to fit in and wasn't active so i moved him into a goldfish pond (4 - 5 litres). Soon as i didnt this he was a happy little guy swiming around and blubing as they do, the castle i got him hes loving and the plants work well so all should be good. I was wondering are they really outdoor fish? he didnt seem to be well or it mayb have just been the other fish didnt like his big eyes. haha

I just received a new Moor from some friends and he is the most active fish I have ever seen. I decided to do some research on Powderpuff, (that's its name), and I think I am going to buy more so that Powderpuff can have some friends. He does all the usual stuff like swimming to the top of his bowl and sucking in air. But, what's intersting, Powderpuff likes music..when I have my music on, he has extra energy..he just doesn't stop moving 'till I turn off the music! So cute and thanks for all the advice!

i also have a black moor and a calico fantail, Blackie and Goldie. they must be about 3 months old now. Goldie is such a bully, whilst Blackie is so laid back, and lets Goldie chase his (her?) tail about, after a long chase, they both swim side by side. Its so nice to see how their relationship is growing, they're such a cute couple. :)

Hey. Me and my best friend Elyse got a black moor fish about a month ago. She has been living well. We also just found out she was pregnant. My friend Elyse thought these fish didn't lay eggs. But i thought they did. And so i looked it up here and found out they did lay eggs. Oh and by the way our fish's name is Pimp. Now that we found out its a girl we should call her Pimpette. but i like pimp. Well, thanks for the information!
