Galaxy Pinto Shrimp For Sale, these are Black Shadow Galaxy Pinto that I have breed from scratch by crossing Blue Steel shrimp(Tibee) with Black Zebra Pinto (Tibee), using the Blue Steels shadow genetics I was able to get some nice Galaxy shrimp with a blue hue to the white.
Galaxy Pinto Shrimp are called Tibees as different Tiger shrimp and Bee shrimp are crossbreed to get different mutations.(Tiger X Bee) The name Galaxy comes from the white spots on the head and body of the shrimp which are though to represent galaxy and star formations, the more spots and markings the shrimp or galaxy and stars the shrimp has the more expensive the shrimp can be. The most expensive Galaxy I have heard of to date was a shrimp that was sold in auction for $6000 dollars US to another breeder.
Galaxy Pinto can also have a back line which my shrimp dont have.
Substrate: Dose best on an active substrate I use Akadama soil, ether double red line or triple white line soil is good.
Temperature: 22c -25c the hotter the water the faster the shrimp breed, eggs also take less time to gestate but mortality rates are higher.
pH: 5 - 6.8 The lower the pH the better Galaxy Pinto do.
TDS: 130 ppm (this is a ballpark figure and anything between 100 - 150 ppm TDS (Total dissolved Solids) is fine
Lifespan: 1.5 - 2 years
Water changes: 10% every week or two.
Top up with pure Reverse Osmosis water to counter evaporation.
Feeding: Feed the shrimp what they will eat in 2 hours and remove all left overs.
Also available from The Shrimp Farm (USA)

I have no idea why I have been buying shrimp anywhere else but from mark. Just received my painted red’s today (Wednesday) in the U.K. These were dispatched on Monday. Super fast delivery and they all survived and look happy. Thanks for the extra shrimp too ���.
I will be buying again that is for certain.
Thank you Mark.
Marks Shrimp Tanks
As an shrimp keeper I have a wealth of knowledge dating back almost 30 years and I have been breeding and keeping freshwater aquarium shrimp such as Red Cherry Shrimp, Crystal Red Shrimp, Taiwan Bee Shrimp for about 10 years.
Early in 2016 I decided to start my own YouTube channel called Marks Shrimp Tanks which you can find here https://goo.gl/JMPwor
I started my own channel to help others learn how to keep freshwater aquarium shrimp and I hope I can spread my passion for this wonderful hobby.
