I'm going to try and go find him again. I got lost on the way home from work (again!) so now it's dark but I'm going to see if I can.

Well the good news is I found him in the same spot he was at before. The bad news is I ended up drenched and still didn't catch him :/ so today ill be going back to try yet again and I'll keep doing so until I catch him. I don't know who said black moors are slow because of their large fins but it is not true in this fishes case.

Agreed. Somebody obviously did not want it and released it there, which Im pretty sure might be illegal, at least in certain places. Not only is it not native, but being a fancy goldfish it is not really suited for that type of environment all year round, although this one seems to have survived well enough on its own. If you don't have a permanent place for it, maybe one of the other members here might want it. Maybe someone here has a goldfish pond or tank and has room for one ... Moor? ;) (Sorry couldn't resist) Let us know when you catch it.

Nope not a fisherman. Can you get a good fishing net at Walmart? He won't let me get too close to him

You can get net at WM does need to a high price net but a long handle is a plus and make sure mesh isn't to large
