Silane Galaxy Pinto

Product Description

Galaxy Pinto


There is very little information out there about these beautiful shrimp called the Galaxy Pinto. My understanding is that the name originated from the breeder when he or she observed that the shrimp was showing white speckles on the body which looked like a galaxy with many stars.

The galaxy pinto is a rather expensive shrimp in the hobby with a range of prices between $50 and $200 each on average. Price is determined by color, size and sex. Since the galaxy pinto is a cross between tiger shrimp and Taiwan bee shrimp, it is not an easy pattern to replicate or reproduce. Therefore, many hobbyists are willing to pay the money to skip year of hard work that went into creating this amazing shrimp.

The galaxy pinto comes in two colors: red and black. The red variation sells for a higher price as red is more desirable to most hobbyists. This can also be observed with crystal red shrimp and red cherry shrimp. While color has a lot to do with the price, pattern is also very important. The lowest grade of galaxy pintos is one that has very little white. As the white coloration increases, the higher the value goes. With very little black or red coloration, these shrimp can demand prices of $300 to $400 each.

Stunning Shrimp!

I have place many orders with Flip Aquatics, and Rob and his team have never let me down! The Galaxy Pintos I ordered came healthy and gorgeous! They are a great addition to my tank and would highly recommend them to fellow hobbyists!

Beautiful Shrimp

Beautiful shrimp, flawless, no deaths. Nice pattern and quite a bit of white coloration for the value.

Galaxy pintos

Ordered 6 I got them and was pleased. Breeder Silane saw them and actually said the one was a white boa. So extremely happy

Extraordinarily shrimp

I ordered two of these shrimp. Both had very distinct patterns, one having a classic pinto striping while the other had a mostly solid white back. Both came in alive and healthy. These are truly unique and I am thrilled to add them to my colony.
