Breeding 4 real

Hello.
Recently, (well about 2 hours ago) my grandma said that I could BREED my bettas. She was very serious.
I'm here because I need to know what to purchase when I go to the loal petco or petsmart and why. I can't buy anything of the Internet so please don't say I NEED IAL.
Also I could use a few tips. Thanks!

Yah. She seems to have taken interest in the world of bettas. I mean she has been really suspicious. Saying "I feed each 2-3 pellets and how many drops for cleaning and males can't go together and more than 4 females can?

Read the stickies - I think there is a supply list there. My needs differ greatly to you guys in the USA.
You could use dried oak leaves instead of IAL (Free. lol). They work similarly.

I'm not good at giving tips. I need You to ask me something. Lol Just remember that there is no right nor wrong way to breed. You have to find what works best for you according to the supplies and space available to you. Nevertheless trying something others have succeeded using is always a good way to start.

Breeding boxes??? Never heard of bettas needing small boxes to breed. You can use/float a dry leaf or use half of a styrofoam cup, or just place a dark cover over the tank where you want the nest.

Goodluck!! Thats so exciting!!
Just make sure you figure out places to give them away to/sell them to when they grow up before you breed!
Also it doesnt really matter where you get the parents from, just make sure you look for the best form and younger bettas! The older they get the worse they seem to get at breeding

About the box: the instructions where put in the male and then the female and wait. And this was a about a 1/2 gallon tank.
About what aemaki09 said, thanks.

it's not like breeding guppies or anything else, the little breeding boxes they sell are not going to cut it. Read the stickies, check out betty splendens and do some more research. Then once you have a pretty good idea of what's involved come back and ask your questions. It's not as simple as putting two fish together.
