White female help?

Hey guys! I was wondering if you it's would be able to help me tell if a pale/white female is ready for breeding since we are unable to see the vertical lines on their bodies.
Thanks!

You really just have to make sure she has a big fat belly, that she's been properly conditioned, and that she's showing the behavioral signs of being ready/receptive to the male. (Flirt swimming, head-down, etc.)

If she is flirt swimming when ever you flare her - either to male or female.
Head down (submissive) is usually when she is ready to embrace.
Physical appearance is often deceiving since some have short thick bodies while others have longer thin bodies. And the belly "swells" when the eggs age ready to be released, not before any courtship.

I was worried about this, too, when I bred my cellophane female. She let me know when she was ready by jumping out of the container and into the breeding tank. Silly girl!

I bred Janey (as a cellophone at the time), and basically look for an eggy belly, activeness, etc. while in the spawn tank her colors came out and intensified! That may happen during or before being places in the spawn tank.
