Nope. Mostly a waste. Go with the fishless cycling.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You can still cycle with the fish you'll just have to keep the ammonia level to zero with pwc's and close monitoring. It can be done

It's up to you. It just will take longer and mean more work to cycle with the fish. if you do give them away make sure some dumb "blank" doesn't take them to cycle their tank.

LOL Could be they are nasty. It's entirely up to you. Do you not want them anymore? Is it possible to drive that hour to the other pet store? he might give u some store credit for fish that you actually want.
