Okay, I might just leave him alone Rose, have you seen his "new" new tank yet?I have never heard of any specific complaints about White Clouds and Bettas but the chances are since Zaboomafoo is already in the tank he has the whole thing staked out as his territory. To try at this point to add to the tank would irritate him mightily and bettas are territorial fish if they are nothing else.
If you want other fish in the tank with a betta, usually the recommendation is that the other fish should be in the tank and settled in before adding the betta as he is likely to get along with neighbors much better if they are there before he stakes out his territory.
To do this in addition to the cycle process will make it all the harder for your tank to cycle as the bioload will be greater. You should not add anything to the tank anyway until the tank is cycled. I should ask, is your other tank cycled? If so you can use a piece of the filter media to "seed" the new filter in Zaboomafoo's tank and the cycle will take a very short time in comparison to the process of doing it without the seeding material. You can also take a sock and put some of the gravel from the other tank in it and put it in Zaboomafoo's tank and it will also help the cycle process to hasten.
