Is my blue bolt sick?

The rusty color could be an indication of chitinolytic bacterial disease, a bacterial infection that affects a lot of freshwater shrimp. If he seems fine otherwise, than I would keep an eye on him but not separate him yet. If it advances and you think he is ill, I would isolate him in a hospital tank and treat him and your regular tank water (chitinolytic bact. disease can be caused by a variety of in-tank factors like poor water quality or long usage of soils). Could be a color change due to a new substrate as well, but that seems less likely.
