It's pretty amazing how well these guys hide. I had 5 of them in a HOB refugium for a few months. They never escaped, and I fed them occasionally with little bits of sinking pellets.

I'm no expert, but the way it's growing looks a lot like the dwarf red lotuses I've got. Can you tell if there's a bulb buried in the substrate?
