I've never had a Black Moor. I always bought the feeder goldfish for some reason. LOL
What size tank does a single Black Moor need? I know I've seen some pretty good sized ones at PetSmart. (Obviously, your little guy has quite a ways to go before getting that big, though)

Goldfish need about 10 gallons each, I think.

He is so cute! You just wanna pick him up and squeeze him! :p

Aww too cute! I love the little Black Moors but they need so much space because of all the waste they produce, and I'm pushing it right now with all my Betta tanks!

Aww..What a cutie.:love: If you have to keep two, I'd keep them in a 30g as the minimum. Black moors tend to grow rather and bulky at 10-12 inches. My black moor is a singletail at 6" and my largest goldfish is a 10" black oranda.:smile:

I don't like the look of goldfish myself :3 And they're not very colorful, which is what drew me to bettas ;D
If you keep goldfish long enough, you'll find that the fully matured ones are quite colorful to look at. You just have to find the right sources because the ones sold in local fish stores are often culls. Show quality ones or pedigreed ones are very expensive and hard to come by. I get my own goldfish mostly from the breeders now where I can be guaranteed some nice looking ones.
