I think it's all dependant on your QT methods and the state of your established display. But, it's a good thing to try, considering most people want to buy schools of neons and cardinals it would be nice to have your entire purchase live. I've worked in many stores and I would agree that sometimes no acclimation suits these particular two species well - but there are times you QT and save them all or not QT and lose them all. I guess I'm saying that there's many factors leading up to the purchase of the fish at the store by the customer to remember as well. But, I like your thinking. Try to find a new, better way of doing things.
To keep this scientific and not simple subjective theory- can you eleaborate more on when the fish was bought, how many, and what tank size and establishment/chemistry you introduced them in?
