Hello, its fairly hard to tell if a tiger barb is male or female, but the best way that ive learnt how is when the males get excited their nose becomes dark orange to almost a red. So yeah, i hope this helps mate, otherwise u might want to contact a breeder that breeds them personally. Or maybe if ur aquarium doesnt know ask them for their supplier/breeder number to ask them urself. Anywho, I hope this helps :oD

i have had green tiger barbs for 12months and i have used the net to find out more info about them. the male green tiger barb has a thin orange to red line on its fin the female has none.
