    Common carp around here go from light almost white on the belly and then to a yellowish/orangish as you go up side and then brown to almost black at the the top and then their scales are tipped with a golden/pearlish mixture on the high spots of the scales. Here's a skin mount I did some years back to help explain what I'm trying to say

    They do vary some in color. Here is a skin mount from a few years back. Skin mount reproduction head and fins. I used liquid scales and other colors and this one was in spawn.
