Well.... What do YOU want more? Only YOU can answer that. I have both. Well actually I have a reef, African cichlid tank and my newly planted tank. By far my pride and joy is my African cichlid tank. Second would be my newly planted tank and last my reef.

Something about the planted tank won over the reef and the cichlid tank is just my baby.

Saltwater is more involved, so... If you have the time and want the challenge along with the beauty of a piece of the ocean in your house. Then go for it!!

You need to figure out what fish you want.

Would you want like a predator tank? Foxface, lion fish etc, or freshwater with some killer cichlids? Or a peaceful planted tank with ALOT of schooling fish, shrimp, snails etc. what equipment are you prepared to run and maintain.

Power heads, sump, reactors, protein skimmer, mixing salt. RO/DI unit, testing more parameters and such... All things you need to figure out

Awesome fish

I don't know enough about them to answer the stock for them. Filtration I'd go with a canister depending on the size if the tank. Maybe even 2. I don't like canisters myself so I run aqua clear 110's on my 75 gallon.
