I Don't Know What To Do!!!

I have a dilemma... I want to do two different things but I have the money to do only one. I have a few tanks. I have a 55 gallon that currently has a corn snake (FOR SALE), a 20 gallon long, and a normal 20 gallon so aquariums isn't a problem. I either want to do a saltwater reef or a vivarium with poison dart frogs, and plants and stuff but I can't make up my mind. I'm just looking for opinions of what you would do cause I can't make up my mind. What pros and cons can yall think about. Thanks

First figure whether you want frogs or fish??? Second the most you're going to get from here is people telling you to go with fish!

If $$$$ is a problem it can be very expensive to start a saltwater tank, but I can't say as much for reptiles as I have never owned any

Poison dart frogs. I had a couple when I was younger untill my mother found out what kind of frogs they were. There pretty and if you have sensitive skin just wear gloves and wash well if you have to handle them.

Most captive bred poison arrow frogs are fed crickets so they aren't lethal.

When dart frogs are put in captivity they loose their poison. The diet that they eat in the wild gives them what they need to make the poison so once they start eating different bugs they loose their toxicity

Stingray, what kind of corn snake do you have? I have an amel (orange color) one. I would love to have another one but I am looking for a pinkish one. Or maybe ghost corn
