36g BowFront Stocking Question

I'm nearly cycled now and I'm getting ready for first of several shopping trips. This is really the stocking plan I'd like to do, but would everyone coexist?

AQAdvisor says this will put my tank stock level at 99% full.
Filtration level at 144%.

I'm planning on stocking in 4-5 trips. How long should I wait in between each one?

Right away:
8x Neon Tetra
5x Hatchet
1x Guppy

Next:
8x Blue Emperor Tetra

Then:
2x (female) Pearl Gourami

and Then:
3x Zebra Oto

Finally after 3-4 months:
1x Bolivian Ram


Thanks!

I would start with the emperor tetras and guppy. Two weeks later the neons. Two weeks later the hatchets. Two weeks later otos. Two eeks later pearl gourami. Then a few months later the ram

How were you cycling the tank? If fishless how many ppm did you raise the ammo.

Okay I would do as stated above but add the otos at the same time as the hatchets.

Thanks for the tips. Do you think the two pearl gourami will be okay? I know gourami have a reputation of being aggressive. I should add the tank is planted with lowlight plants.
