NEW PICS

They have changed a lot. The oranda is just as big around as my prealscale with makes me question if (s)he maybe a mix? The prealscale seems like (s)he maybe growing a we/crown.

Looking good. The pearl scale doesn't have proper pearl scales and isn't round enough. They're probably both mixes. But my female oranda is round like that too... So maybe yours is just a girly. The pearlscale has a prominent outtie vent btw. Definitely a female.

I was kind of questioning about the pearl to but wasn't sure if the pearls just don't show up at 1st and show as they age or if it just didn't have that type of scale. There both still small little guys. I personal like that it isn't as round as a pearl scale. I find pearl scales cutie but they really seem like there so bad off health wise. All the normal big bellied pearl scales I've seen around here never seem to make it. Do you think its possible that they maybe from the same batch? The oranda maybe just a big little one I've just never seen a fish that looks so round other then pearls.

Thank you for telling me she's a girl. There still so small I didn't even pay any attention. Think they are both girls. The pearl is between 14-16g and the oranda is 10-12g. They started out at 4g 4 months ago.

They also still need names. I've called them by a few but nothing seems to stick. Most of my goldfish have very simple descriptive names like the oranda atm would just be lipstick or goth or something because of the black lips but just doesn't seem to fix, also think the lip color may still go away to as she seems to be turning all gold. If anyone has any name ideas I wouldn't mind hearing them.

 

Thank you guys for the nice comments.

 

Here's a different picture of the pearl. You can see the scales a little better and that there not really normal or really pearled. either way shes a little cutie. Questions if she is also growing a wen, it looks fleshy like she might be. That may also just be her tho.

Proper pearl scales will have the scales and roundness quite young. A user here named @Chris1251 got a tiny pearl scale named Hindenburg. He was super teensy but was very round already with his proper pearl scales. Yours won't ever get proper pearl scales. I like the way they look though. Very cool. She's very pretty.

I have two boys that are 12 grams or so I've had for two months now. They've already got their breeding stars and joining the chase against the adult females. My female comet had a outtie vent at 13 grams and so I knew she was female. With some fish you can tell early.

And yes I see a tiny crown. It probably won't get very big but we shall see. I will also ponder some names.

I think the fish may have "hammer scales" or something very similar.  Look here for some examples.  
Whoever sorted the goldfish couldn't figure this one out and tossed it in with the pearlscales.  I really like those scales.

Thank you guys.

 

I'm hoping your right about the crown. I don't really want a big crown on her but she will still be cool even if she does get one.

Thank you for trying to help with the names.

 

Hammer scales interesting never heard of them before.They are interesting, I wouldn't say i like or did like the scales them self.

Cool I was hoping I'd get to see a pic. Love the name btw., that is in fact a very fitting name. Very big cutie. I think if mine looked like that I'd have to name it Huffer the Puffer lol.

Thank you for the pic.
