Food for thought.
This is an excellent point. I've been thinking about how we've been comparing SW
and delving further into my own preferences.
I think lighting has a lot to do with my preference for FW
. I haven't seen too wide a range with lighting and coral and such with SW
tanks I've seen. It's almost like the lighting makes them all look similar, although certainly the stock is wide-ranging.
That said, I rarely see two FW
tanks that look alike and I definitely appreciate the more natural approach to lighting used in FW
. So I guess that means that my personal preference is based on overall tank appearance, not stock.
