stock ideas for fluval flex 32.5

That’s a really cool tank! I’m a fan of the all in one filtration. 
Some Corydoras are a must for me. Some of the smaller varieties would work well in the 32.5. 
Cherry Barbs would make a good mid level fish. They’re so cool and a bit underrated. It hard to believe you get such a nice fish for less that $3. 
For a feature fish you could do a pair Apistogramma. I really like the various color morphs of Apistogramma Agassizii.

Schooler I would go with a couple medium size tetras - black phantoms, black neons, diamond tetras. hatchets are great marble ones would be excellent in a tank that size. 
 

bottom dweller I’d go corys all the way. Hope you join the club and get some panda 🐼 corys they are adorable and my favorite Cory. 

Centerpiece fish - you could do a biotope and go with a SA dwarf cichlid like Bolivian rams (need sand substrate), apistogramma or a dwarf acara. Non-biotope would be pearl gouramis 3  or honey gouramis you could have a nice group of 4-7, a livebearer like swords or platys - 1:3 ratio male to female, dwarf neon rainbows would be great as males and females are well colored a group of 5-7 (2-3 m 3-5 f).

That’s a good idea.  My swordtails are more or less my feature fish in my 75 gal. They’re colorful and it’s fun to raise some fry. They make a nice contrast with blue fish like Neon or Cardinal Tetras.

i love my live bearers but i already have a 40 full of them. i like cherry barbs but i thought they were fin nippy. i already have a school of pygmy corries on the way with my lfs. i planned for them to go into a 10 that i plan to rescape eventually, until then they get to hang in quarantine. i love opaline gouramis but wouldnt they get too big and have issue with each other in the space. i kinda want to try some of the honey gouramis, killifish, or an appisto pair. i would have to see if petco can order them. their list can suck sometimes but its the most decent lfc around. worked hard their with some of my coworkers at the time to try and get everything nice and not horrible.

Mine only became nippy when I first introduced them to my 75g. The new water had triggered mating behavior and since I have a 50/50 male to female ratio the boys were a bit nippy. Since I added more plants and fish they have been very docile, even a bit shy. They totally ignore their tank mates.
