    Ok I know that they are legal rough fish but what are they. They look almost the same except for their mouths.

    I think one is a buffalo but I am not sure. it looks the wrong color to ba a carp and it does not have the barbles around the mouth.

    I have no clue on the other one. the one I think is a buffalo weighd 9 lbs and the other weighed 6.
