Question Questions about breeding cellophanes...

So as you might have seen, I'm planning to find a suitable female for my doubletail boy, Cass (in avvie) though I do have a few questions I'm still trying to sort out.

1. He never flares. Ever. He's a happy boy, he's blown a bit of a bubblenest, eats like a pig, but he never flares. Do male bettas only do the squiggly "S" pattern that indicates they're ready to breed when flaring? Or can they do it when they're not flaring as well?

2. I'm sure this has been answered before though I can't find a thread for it- how can you tell a light-colored female is ready to breed if I can't see her breeding stripes? I am aware they also do the squiggly patterns that males do, but I've only had one girl do that out of the 4 to 6 I've had, and only for a few seconds.

I hope these questions aren't too naive- I've bred before, so I do have the basic knowledge of breeding, but the male ended up eating the eggs, and so I'd like to try again with a new pair.

Cellophanes = Marbles.

As far as telling....watch some youtube videos and moniter how both partners act. Soon you'll be able to see what indicates a ready fish.
