Black Moors

At the beginning of the summer I bought 2 Black Moors for my 2000gal koi pond, I was told by someone in the store that I need to remove them before the winter & snow because they don't do well in the cold. Is this true? and if so would they be okay if I put them into a 25gal tank until spring? I have a 65gal tropical freshwater tank, but from what I understand goldfish species cannot be heated?

They can do well in cold but no colder than 15-18 degrees Celsius. You definitely must put them inside your house during winter season. They'll be okay in your 25g temporarily with massive filtration or plenty of water changes.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I'm going out today to buy them a new 15gal tank, can I fill it with fresh tap water? or do I need to use the pond water, or a mix of both?

I would use pond water at first and slowly acclimate them to tap water so you can do water changes during the winter. Make sure you get a large filter though since they can dirty up a 15 gallon in no time.

I have seen moors in discus tanks. People dont realise that they can live in warm temps just think of some asian countries where the temp does not drop below 27c/81 so ther tanks remain warm.

wondering is the beauty of mystery
Check out my 29g grow out (quite a mixed bunch)
