How long did YOUR single betta cycle take?

Just curious about how long people's cycles with just one betta and no tank mates took... Thanks :)

I got my tank on January the 1st, took water to my local aquarium to get tested found out it wasn't ready because no one was living in it got given 6 feeder fish for free and it's still not ready 3 and a bit months later!

I was asking about a fish-in cycle with a single betta. Sorry if I wasn't clear about that...

My 3 Bettas are in 30 litre (7-8 gallon tanks) and they have always been fine.I let their tanks run for about a week before putting them in just to make sure everything was working properly (heater,filter etc) and then put them in.I also added API Quick Start when I first set up their tanks & I added Stress Zyme for the first few weeks during water changes,I now just add Stress Coat + each wc.The ammonia has always been 0 and they have always been great.I have had Peanut since August last year,Button since September last year & Piglet since January this year.They each have their tanks to themselves and I do a water change each week.In a tank that size,kept clean,and with just them in it I have never noticed a difference with anything.They have always been very happy.

Well one of my 10g tanks took 8 wks, I have a 5g fish IN cycling right now since March 1st, almost there but not quite & another 10g that started mid Feb. with one male Betta but due to circumstances had to add one of my mystery snails a couple weeks ago. I've had nitrItes for a month now . . . driving me nuts! Sorry I know the last one isn't a Betta only but it started that way.
