I need help identifying some baby millipedes.

A few months ago I've had well over 100 babies hatch and they've been flourishing in their enclosure with the adults.
I have 3 mixed species currently (A.gigas male/female. A.corralipes male/female. D.macracanthus male/female)

I believe the babies to be A.Gigas, as the first millipedes I had in the tank were a male and female A.Gigas which began mating very soon after I got them around 2 years ago. All the rest of the millipedes I've only got within the few months. However someone on a FB group showed me their A.Gigas babies and they were greyish whereas mine are pink and have stayed pink. Some of their heads are beginning to turn black

My guess is they are A. Corralipes. All the babies I have seen of the other 2 species are black or grayish.

But take heart! Babies of any species are an awesome achievement!
