stocking order

I just started the cycle of my QT.

So, now I'm brainstorming what I want in my 20g long.

Do I need to introduce these in any particular order for aggression issues? Or does it not matter?

4 Rummynose Tetras

6 Neon Tetras

4 Endler's Livebearers (all male)

3 Galaxy Danios

20G long / Finnex Planted + / Marineland C-160 / Tunze Regulator / Fluval Bubble Counter / Cobalt Neo-Therm Heater / Koralia 240 / Rhinox Drop Checker

I'd probably do, maybe two of these species. You're probably going to lose at least a few of the rummynoses if you go with them. Having a bunch of male Endlers in the tank chasing down everything in the tank in an attempt to breed is going to stress out your shy galaxy danios. If it were me, I'd do a really big shoal of the neons (if there's nothing else you can cram 20+ in there fine. They'll be happier and they look really cool as a group. Alternately, I'd do a mostly species only group of the galaxy danios with maybe some snails or bottom dwelling fish that aren't going to bother them.

I see nobody who will be a real problem with aggression so adding them all at one time is okay IF doing a fishless cycle so that there is a large bacteria colony to handle the sudden increase in waste.
