The darker the better. Be sure they can see each other though.

I once read an article that SOME bettas rather spawn at night or when the lights are off then when they are on. but once you see them embracing your supposed to turn the lights on so the male can see where the eggs are.

Hmm it's something I never seemed to notice when I was reading about breeding. Maybe I'll put the lid on and put the light over it.

EDIT: pics coming in a second. And no bubblenest yet.

Yea i read it from an article from some one in Malasia and Thialand And a few in California.

Also If you really think about it, in thialand ponds are not very clear and they are usually filled with floating plants that sometimes cover the sunlight in the pond so it makes sense why.

Where the male had white scales, they turned blue instead of teal. You can see he still has a very few white scales left on top of his head and around his eyes. Sorry for the big pics

She's pretty feisty. She was flaring as soon as the box was open. She flares all day everyday while her brother just sits there and then as soon as she's in the breeding tank she stops and gets right into spawning or within a few hours (first spawn).

Hehe. If this one dosen't work out keep her isolated. Keep far from other bettas or surrounded by black construction paper for a few weeks and then condition her. Should get her kind of feisty.
