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.

I only got two Black Moor fish this morning but they have already settled in. They seem lively and happy.

This type of Goldfish is great to have and fun to watch. It is a good fish to start out with, even though for me it shares a tank with about 20 other fish.

Hello Black Moor fans! I recently (4 days ago) purchansed a Black Moor, named Magellan, and an orange Oranda/Fantail type fish, named Tangy. They get along splendidly with each other! Tangy is very adventurous, exploring the castle and wedging himself between the filter and the glass (he has planty of room to escape). Magellan is a bit more passive, content to just lounge around the tank taking in a couple laps here and there. Both are WONDERFUL fishies and bring me hours of entertainment and relaxation.

I have a little blackmoor called buddy who is so cute because he is so small. I have a black fantail (bubbles) who buddy likes to hang off as if it was his mother (bubbles is a lot bigger than him). but at the moment i am worried about them because we have had them for about 2 weeks and two of our other fantail fish (jaffa and shadow) died of dropsey. buddy and bubbles seem alright but im not sure if there is anything i can do for them.

We have two black moors, Miriam and Keef. They live with a goldfish named Daisy. We just love our black moors, they hang in the tank floating around. They use their little fins to walk along the bottom of the tank and with the sun on them they are the prettiest little things. So placid and happy, we just love them. We called one Miriam cause we were not sure if it is a girl or a boy and Keef cause our favourite saying is "My names Keef" We just love them to bits....

My Black Moors name is Schwartzie and he shares a tank with a calico fantail named Gefilte. He has a really unusual behaviour. He will lay at the bottom of the tank for minutes at a time just staring at the world through some glass rocks. I guess he likes the way it distorts the images or maybe its like glasses for him. I read that moors have pretty poor eyesight... Who knows? After he watches the world go by for a few minutes, he takes a few laps around the tank and then finds another rock to stare through. Very funny to watch!

Hi Everyone, I just got on June 8th a Black Moor named HERMIE and a orange and white Fantail named Elliott. (hope they are boys). I named them after 2 NASCAR racers. I have them in a 30 gal tank and it must be like a ocean to them since they are so small. I hope they like their new home. I have a Lion Head named PITSTOP that I got 7/1996 and I may add him to the tank. Thanks for a great site.
