What Species Is My Crayfish??

HI everyone,
I recently got a crayfish and when I got him at the pet store they told me nothing about him. My problem is that since I don't know his species I don't know what temperature I should keep him in and I've been searching everywhere to try and find out what he is. I obviously don't want to stress him out or eventually kill him with the wrong temperature water, so if anyone could maybe identify what species he is could really help me out. This is what he looks like:

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Sry for the late response but to me it looks like a rare color morph of the procambarus clarkI species

Due to this Rare color morph it’s known as the ghost crayfish

He is really beautiful. I looked them up. They can grow to 4-5" and supposedly need 30 gallons for one adult. Only fast swimming mid level fish are recommended as tank mates.
Temperature range 60-80F. They will also tear up live plants

I read some of the same things, thankfully he hasn’t ripped up the few plants I have in there(yet), but I didn’t know they could get that big but i’m excited for a new tank!!
