I'm gessing I should add them in this order:
Expense isn't really an issue as you are not planning on killing them off, the goal is healthy anyway. Expensive fish can bring in crap as easily as cheap fish. So price is not even a consideration. I would suggest kuhlis and corys last, either order is probably fine but leave as much time between additions as you can, couple of weeks minimum as you want the tank to acclimatize to the fish load before adding the next batch, particularly the more sensitive bottom feeders. Put each group in with the numbers you plan for that species right off, better if they have their numbers up together rather than a small partial group... but I think that was mentioned.
Don't rush it, more time is always better than less.
