I prefer 4. If you say so.
Marine definitely offers more possible variety for the LFS
shopper, but it WILL cost more and limit your stocking. You say "only one really colorful FW
fish are cichlids". You do realize that is as ignorant as saying the only FW
fish are from Petsmart, right? You need to do a bit more research and maybe gain a bit of experience before you make such broad ranging statements. There are cichlids and other colorful fish (google rainbowfish) that aren't gonna be seen at your Summer job.
