Is your bigger fish the Oranda? If so, I don't see a lot of Calico Oranda's and yours is a cutie. You should take a closer photo of them though. They are kind of hard to see.

I personally think its a pearl scale but not really sure I'll try to take a bunch of pics today so you could help me identify them I know one is an oranda and the other is a ryukin or pearlscale?

A pearlscale has round thick shaped like "pearls" scales. They have round bellies that remind you of a golf ball. Your fish looks young and might not show the roundness of a golfball belly yet. Some pearlscales have headgrowth like an Oranda will. On a Crowned Pearlscale I think it's more of two round like shapes sitting on top of the fish head. ha ha Not sure exactly what the term would be called. An Oranda it's called, Wen.

I don't have any recent pics of my Crowned Pearlscale but here she is anyway. Her belly is so much rounder. Perhaps others will share their Pearlscales.
