@anonymous: The Black Moor is a cold water goldfish and does not belong. A betta requires a heated tank. I'm a goldfish lover, but I have bettas, too. They have completely different requirements in environment and diet.

The 'Black Lace' betta is a dark colored fish that rarely approaches the depth and intensity of the melano black. Most Black Lace fish display too much iridescence in body and fins to be competitive in the Black class, and are instead relegated to Dark Bicolor. The ends of the fins of Black Lace fish should be clear or cellophane in color, causing the 'lacy' look that gave this type of black its name. Amateur hobbyists in particular need to be careful not to confuse Black Lace with Melano Butterfly, the fins of which can also fade to clear or smoke. Unlike the Black Lace, the Melano Butterfly will still maintain a very dark black or blue-black body color, and are still genetically melanos. Black and Orange Male Betta Fish

This is basically a black fish, dark and almost black, but with a lot of iridescence in body and fins. The ends of the fins are clear or cellophane giving them the look of lace. This coloring comes out of marble strains. These fish are not competitive because of the iridescence in show classes. Though not ideal for showing, the females in this color are normally fertile and often used in breeding for black. This color is recessive to normal dark color. Though an attractive pattern in Bettas, this type of black is much less desirable than the true Melano Black.
My betta use to be blue with red on her tain now she is black. I think she is 1/2 years old. I don’t know. she does not have a pump in her tanks. She acts like any other fish world. I don’t know…This is a fairly new color and as such we don't see the consistency in form or color. But it is an exciting new pattern we are seeing in bettas. The fish has splotches of color that resemble the spots found on Dalmatian dogs. It is like marble but the pattern is definite spots of color instead of patches of color. We see this new pattern in red as well as black.As a reminder, the symptoms above are very different from injuries caused by tail biting and fin nipping, fighting, or snagging tank decor. Fin tears and rips will exist without the brown or black edges and will not show the other symptoms listed above. Some breeds of betta fish are also bred to have split fins like the double tail halfmoon.Name: Fin Rot / Fin Melt / Tail Rot
Scientific Name: Pseudomonas fluorescens if caused by bacteria
Cause: Poor water quality or stress leading to a weakened immune system
Visual Betta Fin Rot Symptoms: Deteriorating tail and fin tips with black or red edges.
Behavioral Betta Fin Rot Symptoms: No abnormal behavioral symptoms accompany fin rot or tail rot.
Treatment: Depends on severity. Water change, Filter Change, Tropical Tank Temperatures, Antibiotics
Contagious?: Not usually contagious unless other fish have a weakened immune system.
Outlook: A full and healthy recovery is normal with fins growing back.In wild type bettas black is a color that is often covered by other colors. The distribution of black pigment is all over the fish except for most of the caudal fin and the abdomenal area. This dispersion is of medium density but is not usually obvious because of other overlaying colors.
