Uh Oh. You absolutely can't forget that step.
If those are the total of the plants you will still need to rely on the bacterial nitrification with a full fish load. With just the neons that you have the ammonia production may be small enough that any spikes will just be bumps, or between your plants and still active filter and gravel, might not happen at all.
Based on what I have seen with fish additions in a newish tank... I'd consider this newish after the cleaning... leaving two weeks between fish additions would be suggested. Add your current neons now, bring the neon group up to the numbers you want to keep in two weeks, then add the next species at full numbers and repeat up to your full load.
Don't get sold fish that you don't plan on putting in at that time. That seems to be where a lot of people end up with mismatched fish, too many fish, too large fish etc. Spontaneous purchases.
I almost forgot, post some pics as you can, we all love to see pictures of tanks.
