Oh god I know how you feel. I got my betta, Paarthurnax, just recently after a long fishless hiatus and now I am finding myself buying all these tanks and wanting to take home every betta I see at the store D:

Do you have a thick blanket or towel? it helps to cover their cage at night because when the sun comes up they can't see it and don't know. I really suggest a blanket you can't see through.

I was worried about that, their a breeding pair. Unfortunately you can't separate them if that's the case If you want to help with the egg laying process give them a bunch of ripped paper. They'll make a nest. Although the other big problem with that is the female and male will become super protective of the babies... On the up side, if they do have babies you can hand train them from the get go. I'll call and ask my sis what she thinks. She used to breed them

Don't use a wild bird nest! They will want to build their own. Shredded paper will be fine.. I know you can also buy "nesting material" and little fluff and pet stores if you want to do that.
Can't help you on the number of chicks.. I'm sure Ivan will know better.
I know that after she lays her eggs she will need A LOT of calcium to help her body recover. I believe cuttlebone will provide this to her?
