If we had two 5cm fish could we also have a school of 6 tetra, or is that too much? Is 6 enough for tetra or would they need to be in a bigger group to be happy?

You certainly understand the cycle requirements. If you intend stocking slowly, your nitrogen cycle only needs to oxidize 2 to 3 ppm ammonia per day.

The colony may even shrink as fewer fish can only support less bacteria.

i agree with ammonia use.
the only thing i can add is if you know anyone with a good healthy system, they may be able to give you some media during a water change or something. it will help seed your tank and get the bacteria colony going faster.
