The Great Debate: SWvsFW (vs BW)

So I know this is a great debate in some places, and I figured I would start a poll and see which is really more preferred. I personally would love to have one each of SW FW and BW tanks, but I am not in the budget for all of that yet. So, which do you prefer? And Why?

I like it all, although I do favor sw cause I haven't tried it yet lol, but I chose combo because it suited my opinions better.

I voted for SW, even though i dont have a sw tank i really just love the way they look and everything that goes on in them. I have all FW and love them its just SW looks so much better in some cases (theres a few FW that i really love). If it wasnt so expensive and so much work i would def. have a sw tank.

FW all the way. Simpler, cheaper, and fits my view of nature more closely than a reef environment does. I am envious of a well-kept, colorful SW tank, though.

Has FW growing up, then a FW 30 for years with my GF that travelled with me to a couple of new locations. After 5 years with no tank I made the move to SW. If I had the room I would add more SW tanks!

I voted FW. having a SW tank is just too darn expensive. and to be honest i like the look of a lush, green, planted tank much better than any SW reef tank i have seen. i say SW belongs in the ocean, leave it there! lol
