    the easiest way to sex a tiger is, a Mature male King Tiger Plecos will develop hairy bristles on the pectoral fins.

    as you cant tell from the photo you will have to have a look,

    by the way excellant fish :cool:

    from the body shape it looks like it could be a female...

    I would also say the plec is a female from looking at the body shape :)

    ditto with that, i'm sure the thickness of the pectoral fin bone has something to do with it also... although as said, the bristles are the easiest way to tell (if the plec is mature enough).
