I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

well...you didnt cycle the fishless cycle way if thats what you were trying to do. You obviously read up on it so i dont have to explain it at all. So...I dont think your screwed just yet. You can go the 'fish' cycle way. I would monitor your water ( ammonia, nitrite, nitrate ) get it to 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and under 40 nitrate. That wont just happen in one day either. Monitor your betta too, this is really really hard on the fish doing it the ' fish ' cycle way. What are your water results now? Do you have a test kit yet?

It seems like it.

Will your lfs take the betta for awhile? At least until you finished cycling.
