I am not totally an expert on this but I am pretty sure it is a pp because of the little bits of purple I see.

Yep, its a PP.

As for introducing it, i like to give it a once over to see if its healthy as well as look out for any signs of mites; once in the clear, quick dip in the freshwater pool and plop him in the tank.
