My first thought was female boesemani but now not sure at all. And my favorite rainbow site that identifies them all has a dead link.
I wonder if it's an Australian splendid but not all the way into color yet. They act very nuts.

Common on the market. Check the Australian in this link. Colored more like yours.

my guess is a Trifasciata green phase Rainbow.

I don't think so. The Trifasciata has a black band running down his side and a definite greenish coloration. (Banded rainbow)
I saw the Australian at PetSmart yesterday. Same thing as the OP's.

the species to which I am referring is a completely different form of trifasciata. It is very akin to the australian rainbow. The one you list is a Goyder River rainbow, I believe. But, I may be wrong..... I'm dying to know myself, now.

Looks like a Male Yellow (Axelrodi) Rainbow
