Vertical Stripes???

Guys I have a question hope not to silly???

I have seen several pictures of females with obvious breeding stripes. Can you tell me if dark betta's such as blacks will show obvious signs as well. Does there body color fade inorder to see the stripes, and how bout females with dragon scales or platinum whites???

Anyone got a picture??

Thanks

I'm not sure about dragon scales, but darker bodied females are the easiest to see! Their stripes are lighter in color than their body. Light/ platinum females are hard...you can't really see the stripes but the best way to know if they are ready to breed is by their body language (the 'S' movement and clamped fins- with head facing down).

Sarah (my color changing girl ) was black with blue & green & red fins. When she got her breeding bars, she turned WHITE (with tanish fins) and her breeding bars were black.

So maybe they change color? IDK...

The dragons I've seen at petsmart havent had any stripes... but I dont have any dragons so I dont know for sure
And I dont think the white ones do, the ones I've seen havent and my new girl hasnt shown any either (but she does have some orange coloring)

@ Little bettas- The OP meant breeding stripes (not just stripes) Bettas don't have just stripes on 'em....though that would look SUPER COOL! :D
