Black Moor

Black Moor GoldfishBlack Moor goldfish are majestic figures that glide through the water.

The big round eyes and billowy tail signify a natural strength. Their ordinary look is eclectic, even eccentric to us.

In a water garden they stand out from the other shapes of gold fish.

These creatures add to the diversity of the water garden pond.

The fact that they only come in this color adds to this diversity. If an enthusiast wants this shape and special personality swimming in their water garden, they will have to be satisfied with the black coloring. Black Moor goldfish only come in black.

This black coloring can be a strong accent among the other vibrant coloring of all the fish in a water garden pond. The long body and minor globed eyes that symmetrically pop out to pepper the mobile goings on in the pond serve as accents.

Like a canvas that is set using textures, many enthusiasts pick and choose traits to decorate the ornateness of the look.

The tails of black moor are billowy. Although they are not as billowy as other gold fish, if the interchangeable heel that has the black moor in it has a tail that imitates this flowing grace, the heel will look even cooler.

The real black moor once upon a time had vein tails, in the English variety. But in the 1930s this mutation fell extinct falling back into contemporary again.

The tails of black moor are diverse still. The butterfly and ribbon variety still proliferate black moor populations world wide.

The opinionated fade is in favor of the double caudel fin with lobes that are forked and rounded; with all the other fins in perfect symmetry. The competitive prejudice states that the dorsal fin should be 1/3rd to 5/8th the length of the black moors body.

The black moor eyes telescope to the side. They are not as pronounced as the globed eyes of the globe eye gold fish. The telescoping of the celestial goldfish is angled upward distinguishing the black moor as the black gold fish with eyes that telescope to the sides.

Black moors have a hard time seeing food. If you are going to keep them outdoors, then do so with fish whom also have visual handicaps. This will insure that the food distribution is balanced among all the fish.

With these goldfish and other fancy goldfish such as celestial, and bubble eye choose aquatic plants that do not have abrupt leaf ends. This helps the fish from becoming injured.

These great creatures are the moving independent shadows of water gardens, both outdoor and indoor ponds across America and around the globe.
