    Hello Fishlovers

    I am into my 2nd week of cycling process and currently thinking of stocking options.

    Ideally I would like something for bottom, mid and top level so that all areas are covered. :)

    I have attached a picture. Please suggest some stocking ideas.

    Aquarium Details:
    Boyu Aquarium-Picture attached
    Size: 79 X 39 X 39 cms (approx 32 g)
    Filteration: Inbuilt overhead filter 760 litres/hour
    Low Tech planted aqurium

    I would choose a mid/top swimming school such as danios, rasbora, or tetra. The bottom feeders i love cory cats are great they swim all around but spend more time at the bottom very fun fish though, or maybe a single BN pleco. Then choose a centerpiece fish or two, a pair of honey gouranmis or a pair of rams would probably work great.

    I was thinking of following:
    8 Neon Tetras
    1 gourami
    6 rasbora

    Also once the tank is cycled is it advisable to add fish in single go or is i recommended to add different species one by one

    Id recommend one school at a time, no more than 6 at once, also the corydoras require a school so i would advise upping that number to 6. your stocking all seems to fit, i think you could choose panda, emerald, albino, sterbai, or peppered corydoras. a single dwarf gourami or a honey would probably work well.
    Edit: Also they say to add least agressive first so id go with the corydoras then schooling fish then the gourami. i added my gouramis first and still no issues but just to be safe.

    I would add 2-3 at a time, but yes, add them by species, and don't add 3 zebra danios, then three cats, then three rasboras. Add all, danios, all cats, all rasboras etc.
