Exclamation Just got setup

I just got done filling my 40 gallon bow front, putting the decorations in, and hooking up all the equipment. I went to my friends house to get a cup of gravel. It is very cold out and the car ride was about 10 minutes and the water the gravel was with got slightly cool on the way back to my house. Do you think it is okay, like the bacteria did not die off? I put it in my tank already. On Monday I am going to buy some neon tetras to help cycle.

neons won't be any good to cycle with,they're too delicate.
zebra danios would be better.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
