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.


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.
