I am 99% sure he is a Red Cap Oranda. I am basing this on fin/body shape. Here are several pictures of the new guy. Notice the difference between the Ryukin and the new guy. Lily (the white Ryukin) is behind the plant but you can see that there's a difference in their shapes. Lily has a bit of an egg shape and Mufasa (that's his name) has more of an oranda shape. Also he has a red cap so i assume he is an oranda, just that his wen hasnt developed?
also, they are barely an inch so they're really young ;D
thanks guys!
