i feel no matter witch u chose sw or fw its still a wonderful hobby, and im sure everybody will agree in saying no matter with u chose its still gonna cost money and time as all hobbys do. im sure im not the only one that has multiple hobbies and its all about how invested u are in your chosen path. like some said a hi-tech planted tank is just as hard and costly as some reef tanks. in the end of it u need to go with what u want and what is reasonable for your piggy bank. im sure we have all gotten in over our heads at one point, but at the end of the day u love what u do or u wouldnt do. i chose a reef tank because like deny said the outcome is worth it and it makes it worth all the money i spend

just my 2 cents

Ok.., about a million years ago I had this beautiful freshwater tank with all kinds of interesting creatures roaming about., .. I was as proud as a cat with a dead rat on your porch about the whole thing. It was a challenge for me to keep every thing going but I did for a long time...., but when j got the urge to try saltwater that opened a whole new world., an alien world for me., and after experiencing both worlds ., I just love the marine aspect of the hobby so much more.., as stated before it's a impossible question to answer but IMHO if you haven't tried the saltwater side of the hobby you should do so just to see what's on the other side... there's no right nor wrong ., just two sides to the fence

Salt water is 100x more rewarding... once a reef tank is established only thing need is pwc period ... if anyones doing more then that there's a reason behind it

I would say go for the discus. I have a discus tank myself. It's the best watching them school together and with that 150 gallon you got you can get alot of different type of discus.I have a new sw tank but it's my first one so I can't compare the maintenance but discus need alot of water changes but it's so worth it.

That's a pretty quantitative measurement for a qualitative opinion.
