I have just purchased a tiny black moor, he is gorgeous! I really like him, i have noticed he has now found his own little spot in the tank where he likes to scavange and "play"! Its near the bottom of the filter, moving all the stones around for lost food! His companions are a goldfish & a fantail. The faintail is smaller than my black moor, yet the goldfish is bigger than both of them. The goldfish loves to go up to the filter and be blown away...or so it seems?! I must say, i've only had him an hour and he is already bringing entertainment in to my dull office!

i have 3 black moors in my 3 ft tank, with my other 8 fishes, the smallest one always swimming around and following the other fishes while the mid sized and large one are always scavanging for food. They are such nice fish, their scales are black and look like velvet, and they sure do eat a lot! i would recommend them to any one wanting to start a tank because they are so easy to take care of and go well with other fishes except small ones. All you have to do is feed them once a day...and have good amount of filteration and oxygen.[WARNING!!!These fish will fight back and kill if needed, i've seen it!]

I have an extra large black Moor named Ali. He has one huge eye and one even larger one. He recently lived up to his name after a tragic accident that caused my fish tank to break. He suffered a few cuts and bruises, but Ali is a true fighter. He's with the store owner being treated as I get my new tank together.

I am going to add another Moor and name him Frazier! It may just be a Thriller in Manilla, who knows....

i just got my black moor gold fish and he is perfect. his name is pop-eye because of his eyes. he is very lively and gets along well with my black ghost knife fish. i have a clear glass cup set sidways in my tank and he loves it. he is always swimming in it and it is were he sleeps. i have just started collecting freshwater fish, but surely he will be the funnest in the bunch.

I have two goldfish. Pinchy is the lionhead and Fat Tony is the black moor. These are my first fish and they are such easy pets to look after and very entertaining to watch. I got them both about 5 months ago. Fat Tony did a Nemo the first day I got them and got stuck in the filter - I pulled him out and he lived! He's eye is a little more outwards than usual though! Since I got them they are feeding out of my hand and let me pat them and pick them up. Both breeds are absolutely gorgeous, would recommend to anyone.

My mom purchased a Black Moor and it likes to follow the other goldfish around the tank. The Black Moor, along with the other fish has chosen the bottom left side of the tank as their hang out spot.

2 days ago I got a Black Moor goldfish and my brother Malcolm got a Fantail. These are the first fish we have had and they seem to be getting on with each other. My fishes name is Shark Bait and my bro called his Gumpa. Today I thought he was blind or something because he wouldn't eat his food, except I did some research about the fish and found out that it usually waits at the bottom for the food to drop down. Now I am happy and oh yeah my brothers fish, Gumpa, is really small and cute. not saying mine isn't ok, they are both really cool. C'yall.

I've been the owner of a Black Moor Goldfish for awhile now. They certainly are a beautiful fish, and when they swim it's like black velvet thru water. We call our fish "The Darkness", cause he's got an almost perfect coat of black.
