  1. Thanks for the welcome! I already picked out two of the large. I swear every time I go in there the same two swim straight to the front of the tank and say hi! Maybe I'm nuts! I also think the guy in the fish section thinks I am trying to steal since I go in there every other day to check on them! I guess I just answered my own question about which size to get!!

  2. Thanks for the info! I am having a great time finding safe tank decor given thier eye sensitivity. Based on stuff I have seen here on the forums I have bought repashy, pro gold, spirulina flakes and shrimp pellets and one of my commons seems to be more scent based with food. It is awesome to see how excited they get when I feed them vs before when I was feeding them some low cost pellets. Plus, within a week or two thier colors really popped from eating high quality food. I'm just kicking myself for how uneducated I was about feeding them. It is also fun to see how they size up fresh veggies and try and figure out how to eat them since it is all new to them! They are way smarter than I thought. Keep me posted about your telescope!

    I also feed mine frozen blood worms with a cone feeder and lettuce with a clip. The Moor has learned where these are and can easily find them. Check out the videos below...

    Thanks! I have a clip I like that cone thing! Your tank is lovely. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I think that larger, older fish give you a better idea of whether or not the black will stay true.

    Being such a "rescuer" I also think people will buy the little guys and not the older fish which make me want to take them home even moor (more I mean :teehee )

  5. Hi All,

    I am interested in starting a tank with Black Moors. I have only ever kept comets and commons. I have a soon to be empty 39 gallon tank and am planning on stocking it with two moors. I want to be very prepared with a cycled tank and the quarintine process and I want to ensure that I buy healthy fish. I was at Pet***rt and a few other fish stores and have been lurking at the black moor tanks. They seem to have great personalities! For some reason the chain store seems to have the healthiest looking fish. All the rest I detected varios illnesses in thier fancy goldie tanks (one was so aweful I amost cried over the poor sick goldies.) I was wondering if anyone had advice on what is better, buying the very small size moors or the medium size moors. I think with the older fish it is a bit easier to tell if they will stay really velvety black which I like but what is more important is a healthy fish. Are larger (older) fancies a better bet in terms of overall health when faced with the stress of adjusting to a new tank? ORrshould I pick the little guys? Any suggestions and advice would be appreciated! :duckk:

  6. Just saying that I LOVE goldfish videos from forum people so many thanks! I would love a video about how to quarintine new fish! Like, what to look for and how to know they are ready for thier new tank. ALso, how people condition thier water, aside from Prime, do people use Gold Trace> Gold Basics? Dr Tim's stuff? There is so much out there that I just don't know! Thanks to everyone that puts the time in to making videos! Plus, they look awesome on my Apple TV!!!
