Default Small scale carp?

GF caught this small scaled carp and posted my normal carp as a reference. Is this a genetic variation thats common like mirror carp or no?

Good looking fish! There are a couple of Common carp variations - Common and Mirror ( partial scales) and Leather (no or almost no scales) . Never heard of a small scale Carp to be honest.

Small scale is just how i was describing it because like you said normally its the mirror carp and bigger but less scales.

Yes, it's just another genetic variation often called a "muddler" by carp anglers.
We see them pretty regularly in the Assiniboine.
