Looks like a Percnon gibbesi or Sally lightfoot, but not quite the right coloration and markings on carapace.

I'm sure your kidding. Mine leads to a concrete coffin in the back yard. He would never survive the chemicals put in the water between your toilet and the ocean.

I say set up a little 10 gal. unwanted hitchhiker tank and let them fight it out for dominance. That's what I did and it's almost as entertaining as the other tanks. I hate to kill things just to kill them, but that's just me.
