I am first waiting for my other two bettas that I own right now to pass on, they're both pretty old I think, after that I will be looking at betta pairs, but thanks and if you do keep on breeding I might buy from you since you live closer to Oregon:)

Sounds good ( my multi line will keep going no worries there ) the other thing you should look into is the method you want to use. You can do all natural, breeder method, and everything in between. Everyone has their own way but you have to decide what works for you. I like to use natural rain water mixed into fresh and cramed with plants in usually a 5 gal container filled about 4 inches. Starting with a ten gal for a fist time breeder is usually easier sense there is more water to work with it can be used as a grow out for a while. My new thing is introducing the female first I have had good success with however many people introduce the male first.

The 30 Gallon is good for a growout tank.

No, the growout tank is for the fry. They grow up in that tank. You have to use like a 10 Gallon for a spawning tank.

^+1 the thirty gal but it depends on the filter I would consider getting a sponge filter for it I have had problems with other types unless they are baffled.
And for spawning anything between 5-15 gal should work fine for you any larger and the male and female can sometimes get lost and the smaller the tank the harder it is to keep clean and the female can sometimes not get away and be killed.

I could block off part of it to have them only be in half of the tank

No, you need 2 separate tanks. 1 30 Gallon. And 1 5-15 Gallon.
