Hello, and welcome to the forum! Don't feel bad; I got two bettas in late December and I didn't even learn about cycling until April! BTW, fish are addicting. In December, I said: "I'm going to get ONE betta." But I got two. "NO more fish." four months later... "I have two 2.5 gallon betta tanks, one 15 gallon freshwater community tank, and a 4 gallon guppy tank! NO MORE FISH!!!" Yesterday... "I have room in my 15 gallon! I'll get three more female guppies, two more serpae tetras, two platies, ooh! Maybe some ghost shrimp, too!" When it's all said and done, you might need an FINtervention.
