Will someone identify my goldfish for me?

Hi, here are my two goldfish. When I purchased them, they came with the title "small fancy goldfish." I would like to know what kind they are; Petco called them Orandas but I think they are Ryukins. Any thoughts?

Best wishes for your fishes!

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Just what I thought! Petco did have some red-capped Orandas in the tank along with their Ryukins, but they also had giant danios in their zebra danio tank, so I hesitated to trust that they knew what kind of fish mine are.

Yes, I love my red and white Ryukin - his name's Tango. I think he's a really pretty fish, and the bigger he gets, the nicer-looking he becomes. The little orange one is improving as he grows too, but he's not as well-formed as Tango. We love them both, though!

Best wishes for your fishes!
