HM Betta Breeding Checklist. Am I Right?

Materials
5 to 10 gallon tank (Have That)
Hide-Outs For Female (Going To Get That)
Styrofoam Cup Cut In Half (Have That)
Sponge Filter (Do You Need This?)
Heater (Have It;Adjustable Heater)
Vinegar Eels (Dont Have)
Brine Shrimp (Dont Have)
Male Betta (Duh! But Dont Have)
Female Betta (Duh! But Dont Have!)
Glass Jar for introduction of bettas (Have It)
Bubble Nest (Bettas Job! )
Tell Me If I need to add anything!

My Goal
My goal for betta breeding is to breed my own line of purple mustard gas HM bettas with a purple-ish blue-ish body with yellow coloring of the fins.

How You Can Help Me!
I have read every genetic,and breeding,and fry article on bettysplendens.com. But if you can help me with anything that would be appreciated!

Thank you Mr. Vampire for giving me information, and Beat2020 for letting me buy a pair of his bettas (maybe! )

Do you have the food that you'll condition the breeding pair with as well as jars for when the little ones get bigger and need to be seperated?

Frozen foods like brine shrimp and bloodworms are good for conditioning, just make sure to thaw them first. :)

Live plants would be better but that is as optional as filters.

Quick question. Is a 15G too big to breed in?

No. It's a good size to breed in IMO.
