Stocking Order?
 
Will be stocking a new 29G moderately planted tank in Feb. Will be using
Clown Killies
Praecox Rainbows
Honey Gourmais
GBR

Is there an order in which they should be stocked? Can they start being stocked as soon as the tank cycles? What will be the stocking amount of each fish?

Tony, I have edited your post to add the stocking amount at your request. No need to make a new thread and have this locked.:)

You have a choice of either a pair or a solo on blue rams. 4-6 praecox rainbows should be fine. A pair of honey gouramis and 4 killis as well should be fine.:)

Thanks Blue...I was referring more to the order in which they should be put into the tank once cycled. Should the Gouramis go first, Killies second, Rainbows then GBR?

are you doing a fishless cycle or a fish cycle? I would suggest a fishless since those fish dont seem that hardy
