Panda moors have delicate projecting eyes, deep bodies, and long flowing fins. Like any other moor goldfish, pandas can grow very large. They are metallic-scaled and veiltailed. Young moors resemble bronze fantails and their protruding eyes gradually develop with age. They sport a velvety appearance in maturity. However, they may lose this velvet-like appearance with increasing age. They are strictly a cool water fish like all other goldfish.
Because of their delicate eyes and poor vision, pandas are kept in an aquarium without sharp or pointed objects. They also cannot compete for food with more active goldfish varieties. They are sensitive to low water temperature levels.
