Sort of. You'll still have some N-bacteria population, but they'll die back.

As long as you go slowly with restocking you aren't likely to have any issues, however- especially with established live plants in the tank.

RCS are such a low bioload that I don't see any problem adding 50 (or more) at once if you wanted.
