I wouldnt place them all in a 30 gallon tank short term unless you are able to maintain perfect water quality, as neons are very fragile fish. I would be doing x25 water changes, or x1 50% water change weekly.

I do a 15% weekly currently and subtract the cardinal tetras they were out at the store.

I have alot of plants tho that absorb amonia

what about nitrites? ammonia isnt the only toxic substance in your aquarium. I would recommend atleast a 30% weekly water change

Mo I have that chart printed out. And the plant one. I'm stocking a 30 gallon and 2 10 gallons and the charts are very useful!
