As long as Moors are kept with the right tankmates, floating pellets or flakes do not pose a problem.
Since the article says that Black Moors are social, should I purchase another? (or similar breed?) If so, are there any types that are more compatible that others?
Check out that minimum tank size for one ... don't keep any if you can't provide that.
HI i got 3 black moor with 2 oranda.my bigest black moor act very weird in the evening first time i tought he was dead because he go on his side and after he flip on his back and stay for a good 5 minutes or till other fish wake him up i call him weirdo capitain.
Hi weirdocap - welcome to FK Sounds like your fish has some dietary and digestive problems, have a read of this thread for more info:http://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/modules/ ... =ASC&type=&mode=0&start=0Best thing to do is start a thread in the forums if you have any questions
hello... we have a black moor that needs your help... i think lol for the last few days he or she (i cannot tell ) has been just laying at the bottom of the tank in one corner hardly moving at all.. it responds to some tapping on the glass and when i sprinkle some food every other day but we are worried something might be wrong... it shares the tank with a golden fantail and even he seems to think something is up as he doesnt play with his mate no more and is swimming next to him/her as if to comfort... any ideas on what could be wrong? thanks in advance
I recently purchased a beautiful Black moor.Only had him 2 days but hes spending all his time at the top of the tank.Is this normal behavior or is there something wrong?could anyone please tell me.
Hello Rockchild and welcome to Fk you would be better posting your questions on the coldwater forum giving as much information on your tank set up as possible, as in size, how long it has been set up for and if it has a filter etc as this will help the advisor's and save them having to ask these questions before they can help you ok
Hello,Did you get this sorted or is this normal behavior of the Black Moor fish? I have the same problem with one of my Black Moor fish, I have just done a 25% water change to see if the problem get better but nothing has changed. I'm about to test the water quality later this weekend.
It would be better if you could repost in the Coldwater forum about this where more people will see it. When you do, please include the following information:Size of tank, number of fish and what species' they are, how long the tank has been set up, whether it was cycled before adding fish and if so for how long, how often you change any water and how much each time and current test results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH.
