    You can't put cycling on a timeline and say "it's been 1 or 2 or 3 months so my tank should be cycled by now" - a cycled tank has certain readings - 0 ammonia & nitrites and a nitrates reading of 20 or less - until you see readings like that you aren't cycled - it's a process the filter goes through and the amount of time needed is different for every tank.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    +1 to andreahp. Time varies tank to tank. Test results are what really matters.
    125g - 6 Zig Zag Rainbows, 6 Turquoise Rainbows, 6 Boesmani Rainbows, 5 otos, 6 corys

    A cycle can also be lost by cleaning out the filter, where the bacteria lives. But if you are seeing ammonia something has happened and bacteria has been lost. Did you use dechlorinator?

    I would remove your fish and put the poor thing down. (Ice water in a bucket.) It simply is not right to allow him to be attacked over and over again. He has got to be suffering between the ick and the attacks. Are you sure the attacker is another neon rainbow? I have never seen aggressive like that even from the larger rainbows.

    Have you offered it some hiding spaces in fake plants or something? Also, do not try to add more of these fish to this tank. The tank is too small for these fish.
