Just for those of you who dont know Black Moorss do change colour with age. usually to gold from black. My boyfriend has had his black moor Joe for 5 years now he is huge about 3" wide and 6" long. He has spent his whole life in a 30 gallon tank. I just bought him some new friends, another black moor Jenkins, and a plecko billy. they all seen to be growing very fast. Hopefully I can get some sharks soon for my salt water tank.

I have 2 black moors and a goldfish in a tank together. I have had them for about a year now. The weirdest thing happened though. I had the two black moors first. Then I added a goldfish about the same size as them to the tank a few months later. Ever since then the black moors scales started changing colors and now one is completely gold, with only black around his eyes.(kinda looks like he has eyeliner on) Any way, they are great pets, they swim around a lot and are easy to care for.

My black moor is very interesting. He OR she scavenges around for food all the time and eats a lot. Montley cracks me up! We have an angelfish, 2 plicos, an upside down catfish, a glass catfish, another goldfish, and 2 algae eaters. They all do fine together. They have NEVER fought and the tank stays pretty clean since there are 2 golfish eating debris and 2 algae eaters! He is easy to take care of, so I recommend getting a black moor if you want a pretty fish that is easy to take care of.

I bought my Black Moor about six months ago. His name is Burt and truly is an amazing creature. Sometimes he will swim against the current from the filter. I think he wishes that he was a salmon. He is King of the Mountain in the tank. Everyone should have at least one.

My black moor Shadow is sooo cute, he swims up and down in his tank all day and all night, it is like he does not rest. Thanks for all your help in taking care of him.
