questioning sex?

so title sounds odd i know, but i got lilly recently out of "assorted females" bag. within a few days of adding said fish to tank i had the makings of bubble nest.
now i KNOW girls do blow bubbles on occasion but her shapes different to the girls i have (granted the girls i have are all of one spawn)

I cant get her to stay still long enough for photos but hmmm im sure shes female but dont want issues

the nest and said fish

Hmm its hard to tell without a brighter clearer picture, but I don't see the little "egg bump" or whatever the technical term is.

Hmmmm it kind of looks like a male to me, with those long ventrals and rather long anal fin..... it just has a kind of masculine shape. But I could be wrong! Whatever it is, its very cute!!!

mm... looks guyish. lol, i had a 'female' pk until its egg spot disappeared and he started blowing bubble nests. he never had the eggy look, and it seems that yours doesnt either. males tend to have a more streamlined body and bigger anal fins that are more triangular. the tail seems a tad bit too big to be female too.
he looks young tho! how big is he?
