I have a 29 gal tall. Currently have this in it plant wise:
Amazon sword
2x Anubius
Crested Java Fern
Narrow Leaf Java Fern
4x small Staurogyne Repens
3x small Telanthera Cardinalis
4x marimo balls
A decent amount of driftwood
About 3 in. Carib Sea Eco Complete Planted Black Aquarium Substrate

My stock plan is:
8x Neon Tetra
8x Zebra Danio
1x Dwarf Gourami
10x Cherry Shrimp
1x Clown Pleco

Ive got a HOB and Canister filter that puts me at filtration capacity of 250% and a stock level of 87% on AqAdvisor.

I'm looking for advice on stocking order. The clown pleco has been in there for about a month, but I'm kind of lost on what and how many to do next.

Thanks for your help.

I would probably do shrimp, neons, danios, gourami. I've never had the first 3 but I've always read that danios will excite everything so I would think you'd want the neons comfortable first. That's just my theory.... I have had a dwarf gourami, she is a bully and I always added her last to any tank so that she didn't try to claim the whole tank for herself. She was so mean she ended up in a 10 gallon alone. My male dwarf gourami was an absolute sweetheart. He played with me and other fish. He and this one cory swam all over the tank together all the time like they were best friends.

That's pretty much what I was thinking. Thank you very much for your advice.
