    I see a lot where the black fades from telescope eyes. This guy was sold as a black moore but has a good bit of gold. Will it stay this way or will it loose the black?

    If it shows sign of a little bit of red/orange then it most likey in the future turn red/oranda. Idk but could the scales ur seeing be damage because I've seen fish in the fish store that have damage scale look like that

    If you keep it in doors the black may last longer.

    Pet stores love to sell things as "black moors" but I would say it's safe to bet that is no moor. It's gonna be orange/red. I've got lots of moors, including some from Amy S. They have an olive/bronze belly. If you see orange/red showing through on the sides, back, or eyes like that then it's an orange/red fish that just hasn't gotten it's color yet.

    I've got 3 "black moors" 2 are now Gold 1 looks like it might keep its colour. I saw some baby panda moors the other day didn't buy 1 but I wondered how long it would stay a panda as the colours looked weak.
