The Black Moor is special in the world of fancy goldfish because it is one of the only goldfish breeds to be found in a single color.
What is that single color you may ask? You guessed it, it’s black!
The Black Moor does not show this beautiful black velvet color until it matures a little.
Their young are usually found in an amber color and as The Black Moor ages, they can become a grayish-black, giving away their age
WHERE DID THE BLACK MOOR GOLDFISH ORIGINATE?
Originally, the Black Moor was bred in China in the early 1700s.
This makes the Black Moor one of the oldest goldfish breeds to date. They were not always called Black Moors.
In fact, the Chinese named them “Dragon Eyes” as a reference to their protruding telescope eyes.
