Red Pinto Shrimp
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.
There are 3 variants of patterns:
- Spotted Head
Fancy - Such as skunk pattern and cloud patterns. The creative name for skunk pattern is derived from the black-and-white pattern, which very much resembles that of a skunk, especially due to the pattern on the head. And as the name suggests, the Cloud pattern very much resembles clouds shapes on the head of the shrimp.
