So did you cycle the tank at all before adding the betta? I'm using the ada aquasoil in my betta build so I figured I'd let it cycle due to all the ammonia that is supposedly released from the AS before adding him. But I also don't have all that fancy equipment either.
Heya, that plant is Limnobium Laevigatum aka "Frogbit". The filter when I bought it was already cycled for over a year, and I transferred the substrate from my Betta's already established tank as well. With the plants and that precaution, I doubt it will experience any sort of cycle.

Letting your tank cycle sounds like a really good precaution. I've read that ammonia thing about the aquasoil as well.
