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?
Re: Black Moors
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.
