I recommend waiting a few months before thinking about breeding, that way you are ready and equipped to deal with it.

Well you didn't know the answers so I really don't think you have researched this through. A bubblenest just means he is happy.

What size is your male's tank?

What size is your spawning tank?

How many water changes do you do a week?

Do you use conditioner?

Do you know how many eggs can be laid?

1. Put the tank in a very warm room.
2. Not necessary
3. NO. They will spawn but their eggs will fall between the stones and rot.

Another questions.

1)Live plants are important when breeding?
Yes. They help clean the tank and produce food for the fry (but you will need other live food).
2)How many usually female betta eggs?
Around 200-300 but less than 20 will survivenfor new breeders.

3)I should not use stones when breeding?
Never use any kind of substrate (stones) in the breeding tank.
4)How many days should i divide male and females to look each other before breeding?
Conditioning take up to 2 weeks. The pair should be fed well on high quality frozen food (like bloodworms).
5)What reactions male betta when he ready to spawn(other than bubblenest)?
He will wag his body back and forth and try to lure her under the nest.
6)Can i use round shape jar for breeding? or just aquarium?.
You will need a 10 gallon tank.
