From what I know, they are known to change colors, just make sure he is eating great and doesn't show any signs of stress or parasitic infections then you wont have to worry.

Only the highest quality Black Moors retain the darkest coloration throughout their lives. Most of the Moors we see in the lfs end up with something like a dark gold coloration when they mature. There's nothing wrong with them in terms of disease it's just a matter of maturation.

also if the temperature in the moor's tank is too high, that can contribute to loss of that velvety black we all love.

i didnt know that low quailty black moors could turn gold naturally, i read elsewhere that them turning gold was a sign that all was not up to their standards in their tank. like they say you learn something new every day
