From my research I'm thinking I might not be able to tell until after a couple molts when he's no longer red? I had him shipped to me from a friend in Florida who got him as a hitchhiker but I'm not sure where the rock came from originally

That appears to be an Haptosquilla glyptocercus

Oh that could be it! Nothing on there says they can be so red though

Hard to tell from the pictures, but looks like Neogonodactylus Wennerae

A closeup of its smashers would help.

This is the best I could get. He's so small it was hard to get it to focus and he hasn't been back out since I put him in (a couple days ago)
