Hello guys, I brought some "Orandas" (what it was labeled as at the fish store) about 2 months ago, now that they've grown out they seem to look more and more like Ryukins. Can anyone help me ID them to make sure? They don't have the wen growth that my Red Oranda and Red cap have.

I think you need to grow them out more to be 100% sure, in my opinion. Not all orandas get a massive wen, but they should get some growth nevertheless. Ryukins have that large, high arch to them starting at the back of their head, and yours aren’t showing that yet. My guess is that they are probably Orandas, but need to be grown out more. Lots of bloodworms may help wen development as well.
