has quite a green color when compared to other common carp from the same lake and it has no barbels.
No interactions present.
I looked at this but it really requires a very detailed examination lack of mouth barbels is a feature

Hard to tell for sure because of the fingers in the way but I would estimate 38 scales on the lateral line pointing to Common Carp, Crucians have 32-34. The mouth looks quite large and down turned; Crucians should be slightly upturned, bit like a Rudd’s.
Also if there are both species in a lake there are bound to be hybrids as Crucians hybridise very easily. Again similar to Roach/Rudd.
