If u have a dark female....
U can just wait to c the vertical line....
Or just use your judgement....
I have a dark female that don't show her line....
But many year of breeding.....
U can tell when the female is ready to breed....
One of the sign I look for is when she fare back at the male....
With her lower....

Showing sign that she want to follow the male....
Breeding is the easy part.....
Taking care of the fry is the hard part.....
Temp of the water must b the same as the air....
If it's not.....
U will lose most to all your fry.....
Good luck on breeding....
Btw what kind of betta u r breeding????

My dark female shows lines. I also noticed my Rose (lighter color than the rest) shows lines. Not all light colored ones will. What I learned, is when you do get to the part after conditioning where the male makes the bubble nest (female in breeder's net so they can see and smell but not touch), when he does the wiggle dance to her, and when her head is lowered in front of him. But, each method is different, and each betta is different :) trial and error.

Yes xDD But first, can I suggest something? I suggest first trying to make infusoria. The reason behind that suggestion, is that so you know first hand how to make it, and when you do have fry it'll be ready. It's one of the best stuff to make :) And plus get some baby brine shrimp eggs - which a lot of the foods will have to be found online and shipped. Unless your LFS actually has it.

Also, make sure they are both very healthy :) Have you gotten them yet?

Yeah....
Reason behind conditioning your male....
Once u have egg....
The male will stop eating until the fry learn how to swim....
If he's not so great of shape....
He'll get up the egg n fry.....
Make sure u have old enough pair....
My last breeding went down the hole....
300+ egg....
Only like 8 hatch....
Do to a young male....
Didn't take care of the nest....

Males are usually mature after 3-4 months. Best breeding is 6-8 months. First time fathers MAY eat their eggs, or not do their job. Second time around for them they may get better. It depends on the male.

Good care is what a betta needs to spawn but conditioning is needed to produce more fry.

Yes, and feeding the bettas a variety of live, frozen, freeze dried etc for food, actually kicks in the instinct more... letting them know there is enough food to feed their fry.
