Hello - new 170 gal tank

New to forum.
I just picked up a 170 gallon tank from my girlfriends boss.
I came with a 48" coral life lunar compact light Fluva FX5 a emehia canister filter with a inline heater a seperate heater and stand and two ID sharks.

I have had fish most of my life 13 years ago my buddy and i breed cichlids for about a year and then i had a child and had to stop.
i am up in the air if i want to turn the tank to salt water or do a cichlids tank.

Welcome to the website! I vote saltwater, I am a litte biased though.
[CENTER]Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
