i bought a black moor yesterday and named him google. i thought it was an appropriate name because of his eyes. he tends to like to try to jump into my filter which is kind of amusing. i also have another 8 black moors. google seems to be the outcast in the group and stays as far away as possible from the others, but it cant be that bad because i have a 150 gallon tank

My girlfriend was feeding my black moor, and the tank light fell in; shocking my girlfriend and blowing the light bulb out in a flash. My black moor did not seem to notice the electricity that was passed through the tank. So I unplugged the light, moved my girlfriend made sure she was ok and expected the worst of my fish. When I saw the fish swimming around regularly, I fed it.

Hello! I just got a Black Moor this week, and her name is Velvet. She usually spends most of her time scavenging the small coloured rocks at the bottom, looking for food. Since she is getting used to her new surroundings, she is starting to swim up to the surface. I always leave the air pump on. (I even leave it on in my sleep!) The only time I turn it off is when it is time to clean her bowl.
I love my Black Moor!

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.
