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?

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!
