The calico one. I know the orange girl was a Black Moor. Some day I want to get a couple more like him.

(This was before I knew anything about taking care of my fish. This was about two years ago I think. They both passed away due to my mistakes.)

Calico comet with a droopy tail.


The orange one was not a black moor - those are always black. It was an orange telescope fantail.

It looks more to me like a Shub. It could be a comet/shub cross, my shub was a lot more calico but she had a long tail and the same colors, plus the fins match up IMO. She unfortunately, along with my asagi koi got eaten by racoons last year. Sad

I'm positive the other was a Black Moor. I bought it as a 1 inch pure black fish and once she hit a few years old she slowly turned orange.
