Common goldfish. You need a tank of 25-30 gallons MINIMUM. Common goldfish will grow quickly and need bigger tanks.

10 cent feeder goldfish that has been raised in poor conditions, fed junk foods, and thrown around the fair like a rubber ball. Please do not reward this form of animal torture by paying to play the games at fairs that give away live animals as prizes. thousands of them get tossed in the trash every year, others dies from stress.
The common goldfish can grow one inch every month or 2 until it is 10-13 inches long. It can live well over 10 years. It is an omnivore that prefers vegies more then meat. Goldfish food is a good staple, but supplument with , sliced cucumber, spinich blanched spinich, a slice of Canned carrot. You may need to spear these foods with a spoon to sink it.

It's a goldfish.
I warn you though, the goldfishes they give you at fairs are not usually healthy, and often die.

Any of the flake foods should do fine.

That would be a common goldfish. Looks like it's probably a young one that may still be getting its colors. (Young ones start out all black and gradually get their colors as they mature.)
A few tips...
If this is your first time having a fish, please be aware that you need to buy liquid drops from the pet store to remove the chlorine from the water. Do not use straight untreated tap water; also treat it before adding to tank.
Be sure to get a good filter and air stone if you don't have one.
Try to give the tank a cleaning and new water once a week. A 25% water change is usually good. Half or up to 75% water change once a month is also recommended.
Never change 100% of the water, as too much of an abrupt change in water conditions can put a fish into shock and they may possibly die. (Goldfish are hardy, so sometimes they pull through...but sometimes they don't.)
Also, when adding new water, make sure it feels close in temperature to the old water still in the tank. Likewise an abrupt temperature change can also cause shock. No need to be exact though, as long as it feels similar when you put your hand in it, it should be fine.
Once it has warmed up to you and gladly taking food, see about giving it a pea once a week; skin removed. (Aim for soft ones, avoid any that are too hard.) Many fish love them, esp goldfish, and it will help prevent fishy constipation that the store bought foods can commonly cause.

Looks like a goldfish. If you got it yesterday and still have not fed it it may be dead by the time you feed it.
