So this is all new to me. I’ve had her for about a month and half. She was labeled assorted female at petco. Anyways, I woke up seeing bubbles everywhere here (in picture). And I heard females don’t really make bubble nests. So my questions:

Is this even a bubble nest?
Is my she in fact a he?
Are there concerns I should be wary of in regards to bubble nests?

(photos inserted / used mirror toy to get better photos of fins)

background:
-10 gal tank.
-Filter is placed in far left corner.
-Initially I had bought three females and got them “used to each other” ; day 4 this one killed the other two. So she’s a loner now. Just adding that story in case the behavior alters the outcome of my questions?

Thanks everyone!

The only thing I’d watch for is if she lays eggs and puts them in a bubble nest. They will eventually mold or she will eat them and get really fat. So if you do see a bubble nest full of eggs I’d dip a cup in and remove it. Some females are great breeders. I had a female do the same thing. I allowed her to finish laying and filling the nest but by the next day she was eating them so out it came. I considered breeding her and didn’t want her to become an egg eater but I didn’t want her eating herself into a Bloat either.
