Do I Stay or Do I Upgrade?!?!?

Hello all, well here is the story. I "flip" tanks to make some cash to put into my exhisting tanks. Meaning I buy tanks from CL for super cheap and sell them for about double what I got them for. Basically this week i was able to pick up a 55 gal bowfront with equipment such as a wet/dry system, uv sterilizer, skimmer, old coralite fixture (Not the best but decent) and a few other odds and ends. The 55 gal tank n stand are not my taste. However, today I bought a beautiful 30 gal long set up with awesome custom oak stand and canopy.

So here is the big question. Do I stay with my little 10 gal experimental sw tank or do I upgrade to the 30 long?

If you think I should upgrade, should I run the equipment I just picked up or stick with the HOB filters I already have?

Keep in mind it is going to be a FOWLR and MAYBE some soft beginner corals....Maybe. I'd love to get as much input as anyone is willing to give!!!
When you buy tanks, just to sell them for more money then use that extra cash for your own fish.....You have a problem!
