    Having googled pics of Epicystis crucifer it could possibly be.

    I also read they are very hardy. So do I keep it or try find a home for it?

    I'm not 100% sure, any chance of better pics? I'd be wary of a majano?

    Sorry about quality only got a cell cam. I cop the image to make picture smaller but when i insert the pic it blows it up and cause major pixelation. If you check my photo albums it might be better
