Neon tetras are 5 for $5 dollars at the LFS, but my tank isint fully cycled yet.  Can I take advantage of this offer, and get a school of 5 neon tetras, or will the ammonia/nitrite spike and will I lose all my fish?   confused

Neons are not very hardy, and a school of 5 isn't a big enough school for them anyways.  Its probably not worth it.
