buy online, theres lots of reputable dealers out there. pet stores are usually bad places to buy from anyway.

Looks like you have a C. marshalli juvenile, B. albo juvenile, G. pulchripes sling.

Cant confirm the other 2

What shop did you buy them from? I would definitely buy them online next time. I know shipping can cost a lot, but just wait awhile and save up and buy multiple Ts at once to get the most outta shipping. Then, if you buy from a reputable dealer, you'll at least know that you're getting what you paid for.

Everything looks good but the smithi...and in time you should be able to tell...I almost see the triangle on the carapace coming in, which leads me to emelia as my guess. Classic example of a common name mix up IMO...red knee versus red leg....someone, somewhere down the line doesn't use scientific names and you got the wrong t as a direct result.

Either way, if its boehmei, its about the same price, if its emelia, that's slightly more valuable...and of its klassi, you will just regret not buying every one they had in stock, because that's an expensive Brachy.

Can't exactly see the pokie though, but you wouldn't be able to tell until its much much bigger anyway.

it is not eating the cricket because it has only just moulted. If it is at that size it may take a week roughly for its fangs to harden. offering pray before your T has hardened could cause harm/injury to it. The older and bigger the specimen gets, the longer it takes to harden.

remove any prey items that are in with it just now and wait until the fangs are completely black not white/pink/red

If you end up with a klaasi, KEEP IT. They are far more rare in the hobby than smithi and the other members, including emilia.
