Water Quality:

  • Temperature: Maintain a cool and temperate environment with temperatures ranging from 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C).
  • pH Level: Keep the water slightly acidic to neutral, with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5, to support their well-being.
  • GH Level: Aim for a General Hardness (GH) of 8 to 12 dGH for their optimal health.
  • KH Level: Ensure a Carbonate Hardness (KH) level of 4 to 8 dKH to maintain water stability.

Feeding: Black Moor are omnivorous and have a hearty appetite. Offer them a balanced diet of high-quality pellets, flakes, and occasional live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.

Tank Mates:

  • Peaceful Community Fish: Black Moor are generally peaceful and can coexist harmoniously with other non-aggressive community fish like tetras, guppies, and danios.
  • Avoid Nippy Fish: Refrain from housing them with fin-nipping or aggressive species to prevent stress and injury.

Substrates and Tank Decorations: Provide a soft substrate like sand to prevent injuries to their delicate barbels and to allow them to sift through the substrate comfortably. Decorate the tank with smooth rocks, driftwood, and artificial or live plants to offer hiding spots and create a visually pleasing environment.

Suitable Plants: Choose hardy and non-eating plants like Java Ferns and Anubias to enhance the visual appeal while keeping in mind Black Moor’s herbivorous tendencies.

Sexing: Sexing adult Black Moor can be challenging and may require observation of their behavior and subtle physical differences.

Breeding: Breeding Black Moor in a home aquarium can be attempted, but it may require specific conditions and careful management.

Maximum Size and Longevity: Black Moor can grow up to a size of about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm). With proper care, they can live up to 10 to 15 years, providing you with years of joy and companionship.

General Information: Black Moor is a unique variety of goldfish with distinctively large, protruding eyes and a velvety black coloration, making them a sought-after and cherished addition to many aquariums.

A Fun Fact: Did you know that Black Moor’s protruding eyes are a result of a genetic mutation called “telescope eyes”? While this distinctive feature may hinder their vision slightly, it adds to their charm and makes them stand out as one of the most endearing and captivating goldfish varieties!
