I would say if you really want to use fish to cycle the tank get common feeder guppies. By the time the tank is cycled you should have a huge bioload from them breeding and be able to replace them with about the same biomass, in other words if you have 30 guppies you could put in 5-6 swords and be safe if removing the guppies.
