I did a fish in cycle with my Betta but I was very careful and did the water changes and checked the levels everyday sometimes twice a day in the morning and at night using the API Master Freshwater test kit. Also using Prime as your water conditioners give you more peace of mind because it detoxifies everything for 48 hours, also having some live plants helped, I had Hornwort and Anacharis which were a big help to soak up the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate which never got that high during the cycle so they really helped !!!!
