The Black Moor Goldfish is basically a black version of the Telescope Goldfish, though the eyes usually don't protrude as far as they do on the Telescope!

I dubbed my fish Milton because his big eyes look like big nerdy glasses on. He (i like to believe he is actually a "he" because a girl named Milton would be tacky!) lives in a happy environment filled with colorful rocks, a flower, and a lily pad. He eats like a pig and has a very weird habit. He swims to the very top of his water and gurgles the water. Yeah i know...that sounds really weird! He makes noise splashing water around then he swims underwater and blows bubbles with the air he sucked up. I could sit and watch him all day.
I love my Black Moor!

Sam, I also purchased mine at Wal-Mart. I honestly think an animal rights agency should check them out. There were about ten dead fish in his tank alone, and he was the only one out of about ... say 30 fish that seemed like he still had fight left in him. You could literally take your eyes off of him, go shop around, come back and immediately recognize him. That is how pathetic looking the other fish were. It was almost as if he were frantically swimming around trying to free him(her?)self from the death trap fish tank.

Anyway, we named him "Tire" and put in a homestarrunner.com keychain that read "Population: Tire". He is still as lively as he was when we bought him and seems genuinely grateful for his newfound "freedom".

I just bought my first Black Moor Goldfish today. I dubbed him "Rasputin" in hope that he will be a survivor like the Russian monk.

My Black Moors are really cool. I have 3 and I keep them in a Biorb filtered goldfish bowl. They are called Chorky, Ikea and Minty. Its very relaxing to watch them and they look really cool in my new room. They get on fine with each other and with other fish, as i used to keep some in a mixed tank. I would recommend these great fish to anyone.

I got a black moor a little more then two months ago. i have enjoyed his company right from the start. I have him in a 2 gallon tank which we will augment to either 10 or 20 soon. Even though I now have a 72 gallon tank with 18 fish (clown loaches; tiger barbs and green tiger barbs; opaline, moonlight, and pearl gouramis; powder blue dwarf gouramis; and a pleco). I always come back to watch my first fish I bought. the black moor seems healthy and has huge fins compared to others. He is 1.5 inches long and is named buddy.
