Species identification

So last night at a fair I rather impulsively decided to win a goldfish. I’ve kept fancy goldfish when I was younger and had some of the correct equipment at home . 

As of right now he’s in a 5 gallon fish tank with filtration which is understand will not suffice for long. I’m happy to attempt to provide him with whatever he needs to be provided once he’s survived a couple of weeks to make sure I’m not about to shell out a large amount of money for a $1 goldfish who dies in a week because of all the diseases and .

But here comes the issue. I can’t work out what species it is and was wondering if anyone could help? I just want to be able to provide the right size tank for him but I don’t want to end up thinking he’s a 20 gallon species when ideally he needs to be in a pond or something like that. 

I can provide more images if need be
