Brown calico oranda?

I found this oranda at a Petsmart here in town. I think he looks so cool! His body shape looks kind of like a ranchu/lionhead mixed with an oranda. He definitely has a short tail. What color is that called? And do you think he is purebred oranda? *This is my first time posting a picture; hopefully it works right*

Does it have white spot?

Could make a nice oranda, not showing much wen growth though. How big was it?

good eye. Could be a trick of the camera but I also see some speckles on his tail fin as well as on the fins of the one above him.

Ich is a pretty easy fix though. He's cute!

Yep, looks like a tiger to me!

Tiger refers to a calico that almost fully consists of orange/red and black markings. Here some more examples:

I personally love this coloring very much, your fish is a stunner!

That's a pretty cool looking oranda - and even cooler to know that type of oranda has a name! (Don't know why that should surprise me - _everything_ has a name, doesn't it? Its wen looks a bit thin, but it's a long way from an ugly fish.

His wen may grow as he does, and eventually be well-proportioned to him. The good news is that it's probably never going to obscure his vision or breathing!
