So could I get that double tail girl and use her for the cycle since I want to start a betta sorority anyway?

you can cycle a tank with fish, just know that its VERY stressful on them to do so, watch for ammonia spikes especially and change water immediately so she isnt burned

As long as your super watchful on the ammonia, you can do it with a fish. I cycled with Tango in a 1.5 and he was fine. And I fed him pretty sparingly too. He's not easily stressed though. He's the strongest, most unafraid fish I've ever had. I don't know if that made the difference. Just make sure your girl is in otherwise good condition when you start. No diseases or fin rot or anything.

Now we'll all be trawling the craft store. Real plants can be a lot of fun too. :)

I have had zero luck with the betta bulbs that I've bought. I've tried at least 15 different bulbs and nothing has grown...so lame

I just got mine yesterday and one is already starting to grow. I have them in a small Tupperware container with gravel and place in the sun light.

I found it really hard to find a fake plant at the craft store that does not have wire stems. I went to 3!!! The ones i found were drooping plants and only the bottom 4 inches was wire so I just cut that off and glued them to a rock. I like them, and hubby liked the price. He's kind of a tightwad. lol
