Take the advice on a larger tank because it is true. That next step up is pretty similar in size to the 10 gallon anyhow. It will be fine for the baby Blackmoor but once he grows more… Get another fish that swims slow in the goldfish family. I’m trying to think of that other fish that has a plump belly and is very round. I want to say its the Ryukin species but maybe I’m wrong.
Fact of the matter is that the Blackmoor is a slow swimming fish. If you house faster swimming fish with slower swimming fish, there is going to be a food consumption difference. The slower swimming fish is always going to get less food just because it is unable to get to the food fast enough. This can cause for a starving fish. Caution needs to be take.
Blackmoor Fish | My Aquarium Club
near large enough for 4 goldfish esp blackmoor's and other fancies.
: I have a baby Blackmoor in a 10 gallon aquarium. I’m looking for a friend for him to live with. What tank mates can my fish live with? Can someone help with fish compatibility? Need some help on finding roommate for my Blackmoor? I don’t want him lonely.*Awarded Answer : You need to be careful when choosing to keep other fish with your black moor because they are a lot slower swimmers than other goldfish. If you keep some of the faster swimming species like the comet goldfish or a koi fish they will EAT ALL THE FOOD. That will leave no food for your slow fish. Choose a fish that will share the same swimming traits as your blackmoor. Other fancy goldfish work great. There are lots of different species so just take a look at how fast they swim and relate it to your fish.Its important when finding tank mates for your fish that you dont choose a fish that is too fast. If the other roommate swims too fast.. that means it will eat all the food before the slower blackmoor can get any. Different species and types like the faster Comet species or Shubunkin are not good roommates. But you can read on that in our tank mates section. If you want them to be perfectly equal in everything just get another Blackmoor. Once and a great while if you visit different pet stores in big cities you will come across one with a bit of a color difference. All black but has a small patch of discoloration. I like that because then you can tell them apart haha. They truly are great fish. Feed them live worms once and a great while. Your especially not going to be able to have two fish in a 10 gallon for sure. I would start looking around for a 20 gallon at bare minimum. For two full size goldfish, a 30 gal aquarium is the safe route to go. But as far as a tank mate or friend.. I would throw a bottom feeder in there to help eat some of the algae with another type of goldfish or koi. They are closely related though the Koi fish is a faster swimmer so you would have to make sure the Blackmoor was getting enough food even with him being slower.Its important when finding tank mates for your fish that you dont choose a fish that is too fast.
