Saying Bismillah before al-fatihah in all rakats is a confirmed sunnah, so you should do this.

However, they're are two positions regarding saying the bsimillah before a surah. So do what you think is right for that.

Here is the Hanafi position (for seekersguidance)
In summary, the ruling of reciting the basmala in the Hanafi school is as follows:

1. It is a confirmed sunna to recite the basmala (saying Bismillah…) before the Fatiha quietly in every rakat of the prayer, for other than the follower (who does not recite). [Haskafi, Durr al-Mukhtar]

2. It is not a confirmed sunna to recite the basmala between the Fatiha and a Sura. This is not disliked, however. [ibid]

3. If one recites the basmala between the Fatiha and Sura, it is good (hasan). [Ibn `Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar] This is only, however, if one is reciting from the beginning of the surah. [Ibid.]

Therefore, given that the basmala is not necessary (wajib) but a confirmed sunna, one does not perform forgetfulness prostrations for leaving it out, because these are only required if one leaves a necessary (wajib) act. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah; Tahtawi, Hashiya `ala Maraqi al-Falah]

And Allah knows best.

Wassalam,

Bsimillah before surah is very optional. Do it if you want, or dont do it, wont effect validity of your salah.

My tajweed sheikh (Hafs / 3asim) told me that Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem in sura Fatiha is the first ayah & must be read aloud. Though other Hafs / 3asim teachers do not read it aloud. ALLAH says in Quran that Fatihah is seven verses (15:86). The reasoning for reciting aloud is that Sura Fatiha in salat must be to a certain standard & an error may well cancel your salat (recitation of sura Fatihah). "So why risk it by merely whispering the bismillah", was the advice.
