The Black Telescope Moor is all black Chinese fish and highly prized because she makes striking color contrast among brighter fishes.

Black Moors are communal and should have others with whom they group. They swim together in small shoals of 4-6 and will engage in communal feeding, group swimming, and sharing resources. Black Moors can also live with other Telescope Goldfish such as Red and Panda Telescopes.

William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's. He began experimenting with hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, He earned a reputation as a leader in aquatice from hybridiing water lilies. His water lily nursery and company was formed in both Ohio and Pennsylvania and each were passed down to his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation.
