The Black Moor Goldfish is readily available and fairly inexpensive

My Black Moor fish appears to have a combination of 'white spot', 'Velvet' and 'Grey-slime disease'

The Black Moors are able to lay a number of eggs that can spawn easily when they are given the correct conditions. These can breed in groups as small as five fish and are social prefering to breed in larger groups as well. When these fish are in the wild the only time of the year that they like to spawn in is the spring. A person should create conditions in their that mimic the natural breeding conditions. When preparing for breeding a 20 gallon tank will work the best. A person should make sure that the fish are in good health and that they are free of disease. It is suggested that the goldfish are treated for parasites before breeding begins. Many breeders will keep the male and the female Black Moor fish in separate tanks for weeks leading up to the breeding. This is done to help increase the interest that the fish have in the spawning process. The fish should be placed in the tank that is going to be used for breeding at the same time and where you will spot first black moor mating signs. The tank should have a number of solid surfaces so that the eggs can stick to then. These fish also prefer specific plants for spawning. They are going to need plants that are bushy and have plenty of oxygen. The Anacharis is one of the best plants to put into the tank at this time. The temperature in the breeding tank should be around 60 degrees. It should be warmed around 3 degrees a day until the Black Moor fish have spawned. Spawning can begin at a temperature of 68 degrees. The black moor baby fish should be fed a diet high in protein at this time. Some of the best food for these fish includes brine shrimp and worms. The fish should be fed small amounts of this food three times a day. This will help prevent food that is not eaten from sinking to the bottom of the tank. When a person is breeding the the male will begin to swim around the female goldfish. This may go on for a couple of days. The males may also push the female fish up against the plants found in the tank. The females will drop their eggs and they can become fertilized. Spawning can produce up to 10,000 eggs. The fish should be removed from the tank so they do not eat the eggs. Fertilization for Black Moor Goldfish takes four to seven days. The goldfish that hatch can be fed fry food until they are able to eat a regular diet. The new fish will be dark brown in color and like to hide. After a couple of months these fish can be introduced into other thanks and can be sold to those that are looking to purchase a Black Moor Goldfish.

Goldfish Problems Hi, I've recently started keepinggoldfish... I have a bubble eye, a black moor and two fantails, one ofwhich I have just brought home today. When I got home and went to putthe new fish in its bag in the tank with the others, I noticedsomething I'd missed before... it had a big round sore on one sideand some of the white scales were pink underneath! The sore lookedclean, but not knowing what caused it, I've put it in a separatesmall tank without rocks and will be feeding it a little less than Imight have otherwise because it's also a bit bloated; I'mputting a little spinach in as well (your FAQ is SO helpful!). I'mwondering could this have happened on the way home if it knockedagainst the side of the baggie it came home in? or is it some kind ofdisease? It's also a little lethargic and I'm not convincedit's going to live. The others seem ok, they're swimmingnormally etc, but I'm concerned that their poo is rather pale;I'm changing their food over from flakes to pellets so they spendless time at the surface and I can measure how much they get moreeasily, and putting spinach in for them as well. Not that I'mreally sure what colour their poo is supposed to be; it justdoesn't look right. What else should I be doing? I'd begrateful for your help... and do I need to shout at the pet shop owner,or was it my fault for maybe not being careful enough on the way home?Thanks, Claire Fish Disease. that generally, a healthy fish is a happy fish. Fish Disease. Story of a Black Moor. Eek, you'll never guess what happened today! Fish Disease.

The illness is characterized by rapid and shallow breathing, isolation, loss of appetite, and the fish exhibit lethargy and rest at the bottom of the tank. The infection can be chemically treated like other ailments by using a potassium permanganate or a formalin dip. The black moor may die if Ich is not treated at an early stage.
