Hi All

 

I know this might be hard but is is possible for someone to ID these fish for me?

I caught 4 of them in the shallows while catching tadepoles for my tropical fish.

They are about 20mm long and was caught in a small dam close to home (JHB).

Hope some of the experts can help?

They ARE baby Carp, commons

mouth structure and fleshy lips develop as they grow and feeding habits change.

Grown many carp in tanks before
