You can cycle your water a lot quicker if you do a fishless cycle using bacteria from an old tank. You can either ask somebody you know to let you have some of his old filter media, or alternately beg them to put your filter in their tank for a few days before returning it to yours, beneficial bacteria should have built up. A tank cycled in this way takes less than a week to go through its whole cycle. Incidently neons prefer aged water, i wouldn't get them as first fish. Good luck.
