Red Pinto Shrimp - Mixed

Red Pinto Shrimp

You will receive Red pinto shrimp around half an inch to an inch in size. The Red Pinto shrimp has a unique pattern and color due to its unique genetics. Pinto shrimp are bred my mixing Taiwan bee shrimp and tiger shrimp to create a tibee shrimp. Once you get your tibee shrimp you can continue breeding those offspring with Taiwan bees to create what is called a taitibee. At this stage, you will start to see the pinto patterns develop. The three main categories of pintos are zebra, fancy, and spotted head. You can breed for the pattern style you like the most.

The Pinto shrimp are one of our favorite “fancy shrimp”. They have a striking contrast of red or black against white that is not seen in many aquarium shrimp. The best part is the many patterns the shrimp can produce.

Sumply wonderful!

The shrimp are of high quality, very healthy, and vibrant!


I ordered these guys along with two others from here (1 tangerine tiger 5 fantasy blue dream shrimp) and I'll never be ordering from another site again! They were incredibly well packaged so they wouldn't get thrown around and even came with a little instruction guide on how to properly acclimate them, which I appreciate as a fairly new shrimp owner! They also sent me three extra shrimp on top of the ones I ordered, and all of them arrived alive and healthy! The colors are beautiful as well! They had netting in their bags so they had something to hold onto during shipping as well! Really above and beyond!!

They looked great

All arrived healthy and happy!
