Can someone tell me what fish this is? Some kind of rainbowfish?

I got it with a used aquarium I bought.

There are different types, but boesemani fits the colors of your fish. Male boesemani with the blue front and orange/yellow back half. Females are more yellow. He just isn't expressing his vibrant colors yet. Most likely be has to calm down from the move. Fish use markers outside the tank as well.

Boesemani have white edges to the unpaired fins, this fish has black. It is a Melanotaenia parkinsoni.
