female bubble nest?

I temporarily have my female Drina living in a hospital tank and there is a bubble nest in the corner that looks just like it would if there was a male living in the tank.....it takes up the entire side of the Kritter Keeper.
I knew that females sometimes blew bubbles...but not actual nests.

Is this common?

Does she have a white egg spot?

Can you post a picture of her?

I'll post a picture of her for you guys. She is definitely a girl! Her egg dot isn't pronounced like some of my girls. She is a Crowntail & her fins are only a little bit longer than Vegas' (my other CT girl who has short fins).

This is her looking at her bubble nest. Just like the boys!
She is a real trouble maker in the Sorority...she loves to flare & chase & just be an all around jerk. But i haven't ever seen her try to spawn.

I was looking at pictures of CT females and her are definitely longer! But she has that big egg belly like the rest of my girls, petco sold her as a female (but it is petco...), and I'm like 100% sure that you used to be able to see her egg spot.

She is cellophane so some parts of her fins are hard to see because they are clear.

just because she has that egg belly doesnt mean that she is a female. juvenile bettas have that bloated look up until they hit their teen years or months . basically they have that when they are from 3-4 and maybe more weeks old.
