Armadillidium vulgare. Really common and easy to are for. Keep them with leaf litter and a little humid. You can feed them fish flakes or decaying matter

Looks like Armadillidium vulgare to me. This species is easy to keep. Make sure to keep it in a well-ventilated container. Armadillidium sp. tolerate lower humidity than many other isopods, but always needs a moist spot somewhere in the enclosure.
