You might really want to wait a couple more months for the fish to get a bit older and larger. Small fish lay small eggs which make small fry which are harder to keep alive. Larger fish make larger eggs which make larger fry that are easier to keep alive. As a novice breeder, you should go for easier first to get real experience (IMO )
Also, you might want to lower the temp to about 80- 82 degrees. If it gets too hot, the females don't always breed. (Same applies for too cold as well.)

Lastly, do you have a cover for the bin? If not, use clear saran plastic wrap
to cover up the bin. You need to keep humidity in there for the nest to stay in tact.

You can see some of my setups for breeding Bettas in my albums section of my profile page

Bettas were immediately removed. Will wait another 2 months. Thanks Andy
