    I think he looks normal. He's probably still fairly young so he hasn't gotten his full coloring yet. And as for the hiding, he may just be acting shy. If you just recently got him, he could still be getting used to his new environment. Just keep an eye on him and unless he starts showing some really stressed/sick behavior (laying on side, looking extremely pale, gasping, etc) I wouldn't worry too much.

    I agree that fish just doesnt look amture yet..females fins lack much if any of the red coloring seen on males..so that may be it.
