Question male or female?

So I got this lil one a month or so ago, and it was labeled as a female, originally stripped out like crazy from stress, and with time, healed, became a gorgeous blue, green ish color. Now the fins are getting much bigger and lots of flaring? I'm so confused lol And i've noticed small bubble nests ? I'm not sure if this is a girl anymore I need help. Here are pictures , I see purple or pink appearing on the fins, like its changing colors. Also I tried to catch the bubble nest I think is being made.

Petsmart has a bunch of "females" like this. >.>
Very pretty, but too much gender confusion!

Ok so I guess in a month I'll know? Why would my "female" flare, blow bubble nests and keep growing fins lol? SO WEIRD! but it looks to me like no egg spot. I used to see vertical stripes and now he/she never has them anymore. Apparently juvie males have them to show submission to other males? Lol and whenever my males were in qt neat her they would both flare alot.
