No they wont if they arnt super sensitive and you keep an eye on the ammonia reading. Keep changing out water until you get it below 0.5 and youll be ok.

How many fish do you have and is the tank cycled?

You can also invest in moss balls (1 per every ten gallons), they have really helped my ammonia problems.
