Obviously the Panda Moor belongs to the Moor family, has protruding eyes like its cousin the Black Moor and its available only in a black and white coloration similar to the Panda bears.
It's one of the relatively new breeds of twin-tailed goldfish, but it's not hard to find them. Panda Moor has a rounded or egg-shaped body, enhanced by the large protruding eyes on the sides of its head.
Just like their cousins, the Panda Moor is designed for aquariums, even if it's considered to be quite a hardy goldfish. The Panda Moor is a wonderful, fun and friendly fish. They can reach about 4-8 inches in length and the average lifespan is 10-15 years if kept in well maintained goldfish aquariums.
Goldfish eat almost everything you feed them from flake, frozen or fresh foods.

Mixing Panda Moors along with Black Moor, Ryukin, Fantails, Oranda or Bubble Eye goldfish is the best option. They are slow swimmers, non-competitive at feeding and very friendly, making them the perfect tank mates.
Do not mix with other fast swimmers like Common, Comet or Shubunking if you don't want your Panda fish to become stressed and starve.
