To me, it looks like a young ryukin. Not much of a hump yet but has that triangle shape...how big is it? If it's a bigger older fish then I'd go with fantail

It's the smallest one in my tank , bought six weeks ago from the pet shop .

Was around 2 inch when I bought it but has grown over an inch in  6 weeks .

It's a low quality Ryukin. Short peduncle, stout shape, and even face spells Ryukin. Poor form and hump, but Ryukin.

With good care... Junk Ryukins can turn out pretty well too. This is $2 Robin. He was a crappy quality when I got him... But turned into a nice boy over time. Nice hump and everything. Yours has long fins... So I don't expect him to turn out really nice... But don't give up on him.

Oh , I already like him the way he is.

I'm not the biggest fan of some of the hunchbacks I sometimes see so if he stays the same but only bigger I'm perfectly fine .

Ah! Even better then. I am a HUGE Ryukin fan. I can spot one from a mile away and always try to get them as RYUKINY as possible. I forget everyone isn't like me lol. Apologies. He's a lovely guy just the way he is of course.
