which fish to choose?

I will be putting platies, guppies, and a female betta in my tank but which do I use to cycle the tank? I was thinking 2 platies. Would this be ok? thanks.

I don't know how big your aquarium is, but I'd go with the cheapest fish you can get for cycling the tank since it might not make it.

I'd go with the guppies personally.
