Common Goldfish. The two lighter colored ones. They appear almost transparent. I swear I can see some of their internals. Sorry, but that's the best photo I can get.

They look a bit like my sunrise shubunkins, transparent scales. Mine have the dark blue ish spots show up under the scales.
The eyes are black.

I have a couple fish that kind of look like that, but they have a very slight pink tone to them. We never knew what kind of fish they were. We just call them lady fish. They are smaller and slimmer than a goldfish body.

White goldfish are pretty normal. I have at least a few of them. I don't take many fish photos, but you can see one here in the top right.

I have several like that, as well. Sometimes they stay that color, but don’t be surprised if they morph into a different color or color pattern over time.

We have white goldfish as well. Sometimes they have a bit of orange coloration, sometimes they are all white. Just another variation of the usual I guess!

I have some very similar to yours -- where you can see their various organs through the skin. There are so many different kinds of goldfish!
