    The Black Moor is a type of goldfish that has a beautiful velvety look and bulging, telescope-resembling eyes. Most Black Moors stay black but their color can change with age, ranging from gray to black, or they can revert to a metallic orange when kept in warmer water. Since their eye-sight is far from perfect, they may need a little extra help to find their food.

    Love them like you mean it!

    My Black Moor has developed a growth inside the fan on it’s tail. It is about 1/2 way back and just appeared about 2 weeks ago. It is like a bubble, so I was thinking egg sac, but not after more then 2 weeks. It is clear-ish in color and looks jelly-like….

    None of the other fish in the tank have this (it shares it’s tank with 12 other fish of various types – comet goldfish, white clouds and tetras). Nothing new was done, not even a water change when this showed up. Just feeding the normal food I have fed them for the last 6 months or so…

    Does anyone know what this is?
