What's this? I.D. needed!

Just found this in the local classifieds. What is it?

Might need saving seeing as it seems to be being kept in a kitchen sink .

I agree looks like a Koi but Lupin is the expert on goldfish of any kind maybe she will chim in soon or you could pm. Hopefully they just put the fish in the sink for the picture.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Chinese algae eater or at least, it is to me. Any sideview shots? It doesn't have the mouth of koi or goldfish at all.
