Triops Cancriformis Simplex blue?; Colour mutation.

Hey everyone,

So I started setting up a new tank, I used some old sand which I though didn't have any eggs in which were going to hatch. Checked back today to find a fairly large Cancriformis of some sort, but instead of being dark brown like the potential parent/s, it is a really unusual silvery colour!

I assume it must be from a colour mutation which is pretty cool, just hoping it will pass this on to its eggs. Does this look like the triops Simplex, blue Cancriformis i've heard people talking about do you think?

Would appreciate any comments on what your ideas are :).

Here is a link to a video I took of it:

hmm I can't decide whether or not it is a Cancriformis anymore or perhaps a newberryi? Either way it doesn't look like any triops i've seen before.

well from the look of it it has the speckled markings that the cancris have but just in a lighter shade
