Neons are one of those fish that are bred in pools by the thousands and heavily medicated against bacteria. They go though a heck of a lot before finally reaching our tanks.

Its good practice to get into the habit of acclimation, not to mention quarantine as they minimize the amount of stress on your livestock. Its more about being responsible for a living thing than doing what's convenient.
