They will take anything their filter-like claws can catch like frozen Daphnia, Tubifex worms, frozen blood worms etc...

The female have normal thin front legs and not those big ones like the male. So far there is no female for sale in Singapore.

Thx Bro so much for the info...

Have been feeding everything that you mention but so far still growing very slowly.... Anyway, as long as they still alive then just let it be then...

You can keep both of them together but then Armored Shrimp is so huge and clumsy that they tend to knock into plants etc...
