I also think dwarf lily, the leaves are too small for a tiger lotus.
Tiger lotus will routinely put off 2-3 12 inch leaves before it sends out runners to the top, the dwarf lily makes a higher quantity of 4-6 inch leaves instead.
You can also tell by the lily pad, if the pad has serrated edges that slightly tilt up from the water at the points of the serrations, it's a tiger lotus, if the lily pads are round, its a dwarf lily.
In my experience anyways, I have 2 tiger lotus (1 green, 1 red) and 4 dwarf lilies.
