Breeding Betta Supplies?

I have been researching to breed bettas for 2 years now. Can you tell me any other thing I missed out on my list?
I have bought the following items:
-sponge filter
-heater
-tank
-Attison's Betta Spa (spawning inducer with Indian almond leave extract)
-jars
-microworm culture
-chimney for female
-styrofoam for bubblenest
-live plants
-thermometer
-hiding places
-air pump
-airline tubing

I am going to buy bloodworms for conditioning my pair :)

I might've forgotten something, tell me if I did :D
this is my list for BREEDING THE BETTAS. I have a separate list for the BETTA FRY :)

Saran wrap over the top of the tank? It keeps the moisture in, I'm not sure if its needed or not, but I use it... And I don't recomend having "hiding places" the female or male, could easily be injured; I rely on the sponge filter, and live plants to keep the female safe :D ( if i breed in a 10+ gallon, I sometimes use silk plants)...

Another thing I suggest, would be dechlorinator (duh), MarOxy (to be used when you take the female out to keep the eggs fungus free), EasyBalance, StartZyme, and Aquarium salt. And remember to keep up on water changes! :D 50% daily water changes after they're 7 weeks (or so).

Good luck breeding your bettas! It's truely a rewarding experience :D
