Some plants though DO suffocate others with roots though (I think). Maybe I could get some backup on that statement. But not sure 0.0

I am not too sure about that but the reason I said planted is a little more matience is the c02, trimming, fert wet or dry micro and macro nutrients, tabs, trimming, propagating, and the extensive algae battle if you don't get the correct mixture of all mentioned.

Corals I love I enjoy them more but can be just as tricky but many things can go wrong too but still I find way more rewarding and is still the first tank I show off

Keeping both plants and corals are easy if you know what you're doing. Corals are easier if your system is set up right. Once its up, then you kind of cruise and let them grow. More maintenance with the plants. The many members of my local aquarium society does more plants than corals since its more "fun" to maintain and its also cheaper. Some of their saltwater tanks are up for many months or years and its the last tank they think about, but its the first tank I look at.

I prefer planted, Just because it is more in tune with My lifestyle. I imagine If I Grew up In a Salt water environment, Then I would probably lean that way. I still admire the beauty of SW. But then again I want More than just visuals from My Fish. I deal with Planted for the almost instant gratification, Plus I am somewhat of an environmetalist, I get inspired when I look at My Tank(s) and see Greem.

This is a very interesting thread due to the fact i'm caught in an internal debate whether or not to take the leap into saltwater. I'd like to hear more actually.

I say planted tanks are better. You can have schools of amazing fish with the lush green plants. Plus planted tanks are "patriotic" you have the red, white and blue flag fish, neon tetras, and guppies. With saltwater you need to worry about calcium, salinity, ect.
