Schooling fish questions

Hey guys I got some White Cloud Mountain Minnows abut a week ago. 6 to be exact. 1 died so I have 5, but I want 6 is it ok if I get one more just by his or herself? Will they all "school" together? I know fish do not always school only when you have a huge tank or when they are in danger, but if I only bought ome by his or herself and put the fish in with the other fish, wilk the fish be exclided or something?

As I recall, my white cloud minnows were non-aggressive. It isn't likely that they will bother a newcomer to their school. Why not use 7 (2 more) just to further reduce the chance of them pestering a lone new fish?
