I think both tanks have a beauty of their own. Planted is just slow and calm and peaceful where reef tanks pop and are exciting. That's why i think they are both equal...

I guess it just really depends on the aquarist's personality too!! A calm guy would be a bit more drawn towards a planted i guess. I am a hyper kid, so i love reefs!!! Hahah

I'm so intimidated by SW. I'm sticking with FW until I'm out of college... $$$

It all depends on whether you want a piece of the ocean or a piece of a lake. I, personally, keep both. I'm partial to my corals though.
