I assume you are up late studying now days so you will have an opportunity to play with it when you take a study break :biggrin2:. I am guessing it is the same species as Puddles and Beldar. Both learned to play squish and were very personable. The bold red and white is very striking if you get to see it but my two only displayed when unhappy so after a time in the tank their color was just kind of reddish brown. My two had a green speckled look (in addition to the bold white spots) that gives them a briareus look but I don't recall them ever being white. The speckles were not that evident to the eye but show up in the photos. They would be one of my favorite species (whatever it is) if it were for the hours that they keep.
