Tiger Barb Question

One of my Tiger Barbs has a horizontal stripe on both sides. Of all of the Tiger Barbs, this is the only one that has a horizontal stripe. I don't know if this is common or not, but was curious to find out if it 'meant' anything. I don't know how to sex Tiger Barbs so I don't know if this is a gender specific thing or not. What do you think?

My female is much bigger than my male. With my albinos it's easy, the female albino has no red on her nose at all.

Agreed that is normal.
