    well, i have a male and female tiger barb... to identify the sexes, look at their color... the male usually have brighter colors and has a red-orange mouth and the females have duller color and have yellow-orange mouths

    That's easy. The females are the ones with the purses!

    as for tiger barbs, (based on my experience), the male has a red line on his dorsal fin and the female has only half red line(sorry for bad English) on her dorsal fin... and the male will become greener when it is spawning...
