    Looks like you have a very nice looking male Turquoise Rainbowfish displaying his mating coloration & blaze. Its completely normal.

    Its difficult to determine gender for Turquoise Rainbows when they are juveniles. Besides the breeding bright blaze forehead coloration, adult T. Rainbows get a bigger arched back and have generally brighter more vivid coloration than the females.
