Singapore Shrimp/Bamboo Shrimp

I have two Singapore Shrimps, and i'm wondering which is male and female?

One is bigger and has a brown stripe straight through the back to its tail with minimal colors. Not as brown as the other one. The other is smaller and has a lot more brown stripes going vertical and horizontal. It is a lot darker brown than the other one. I don't know how to describe it.

But the size maybe because of the age difference?

Are they male and female?

If not what is the gender? and how do I differentiate them?

Thanks in advance.

The easiest way to tell the difference between genders of these shrimp is to look at the first pair of legs. The male will have one MUCH heavier/thicker leg (or pair of them) than the female.
