Type Of Cray Fish?

Bought this crayfish labeled as a Mexican dwarf crayfish but all the ones I've looked up are orange. Can anyone help me out here and also sex it and tell me how to sex it?

It looks like a Blue Crayfish that molted not too long ago and the colors haven't filled in yet.
Edit: make sure you have hard water, these guys need a ton of minerals to molt properly (calcium).
And iodine in the form of seaweed (wafers, pellets or real weed).

He's a tiny guy. Just double checking you don't mean the electric blue crayfish correct because I've kept those in past and I know this one isn't.

Could either be a Cambarellus Dimintus or Brazos Mexican dwarf crayfish, hard to tell as my dimintus Crays are a more solid blue but the the brazos can come in a blue shade.
