Question help sexing tigers

does anyone have some pics of male and female tiger barbs or a easy way to sex them? I've got one that seems to be a female and I would like to be sure since I have 2 more entering maturity and 1 is developing the same shape.
30 gallon= 9 tigers (3 green 3 albinos 3 normal) 2 kulis 1 opaline 1 pleco need 3 opalines
20 gallon= maybe black widow tetras?
10 gallon= ?
5 gallon= Green Terror
3 gallon= will be guppies

Default Re: help sexing tigers

This is from an article: Egg-scatterers that provide no parental care, Tiger Barbs will eat their own eggs if they have the opportunity. Therefore, set up a separate breeding tank, which can double as a grow-out tank for the fry. Females have a broader more rounded belly, and are larger than the more highly colored males. To acquire a breeding pair, keep at least a half dozen and allow them to pair off. Condition the breeders with live foods, and once a pair has been established, move them to a separate breeding tank.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
