Order of putting fish in

Hi
I have a 47 gallon tank that is currently fish less cycling. I want to get
three spot gourami
Rainbowfish
Cherry barbs
Rams (think bolivian but not 100% sure)
Cockatoo cichlid
Harlequin rasboras
Corys
Zebra loaches
Tetras ( not sure what type yet)

So in what order should I add these?

Thanks

I never knew there is order? Your research should tell you that the biggest fish go last. Let the others claim their spot

I would add fish depending on their swimming levels ( bottoms, middle, top) thats what we have done and so far works out great. Just yesterday added our middle swimmers and everyone seems happy, and better yet some of the little guys are more peppy

Usually it's how hardy a fish is I would put the tetras in first and probably the Bolivian rams last

We started with bottom. Only add a few at a time, do water testings, then the next level. You can always add to the same level after as well. Example after completing all levels go back to bottom and add some corys...hope this helped
