I meant that the spawning tank doesn't need a filter during spawning because the movement of the water can disturb the bubblenest. A filter would be needed for the fry once they hatch.

petco sells an in-tank filter brand name tetra whisper that works well. not too strong that the frys cant swim away at 1 week of age.

There really is no 'fool-proof' way to breed bettas...They're living things with their own personalities, and can't force them to do anything, (much to our frustration sometimes lol). All we can do is set everything up, prepare them, make the conditions perfect and hope for the best.

noob breeder questions ..

how big would conditioning tanks need to be?

i'm conditioning 2 pairs just in case my first choice pair don't like each other .. and i'm wondering can they be conditioned together in divided tanks ? or do they need to be in separate tanks where they can't see each other before putting them in the spawning tanks? or is it best if they can see each other sometimes to get use to each other before putting them in my spawning tank?

The conditioning tanks should be big enough to support a heater (no less than 2 gallons).

You can condition the males together and the females. Reason being you don't want them becoming used to their "pheremones" (not sure if that's what they are but it's a similar concept).

I have never noticed them seeing each other to be a problem. It's up to you.
