Between a LiveRock and a Hardscape
Sorry for the crappy pun, but I've had a pretty difficult decision to make and cant seem to come to a choice on my own... I have been overwhelmed with my high tech 125 as it has turned out to be a huge struggle with my c02 canister and fluval 405 breaking... so i am stuck at a crossroad; Do i stick with FW and make a nice planted discus setup? or do I go all out and make a massive reef tank? I already have sufficient lighting on the tank for an LPS reef tank and ive recently become very amused with keeping SW tanks, however it will take a LOT of time\cash to set that sucker up... I've been saving up several paychecks (i work at my LFS
!) and i have the resources to do it, but on the flip side i've always wanted a nice Discus Tank....
The only downside about running the discus tank would be that my lighting will be far to much (4x 80watt 60" t5HO) for the plants i will be keeping... which will be mostly Java ferns/anubias/crypts.
I know this is a huge wall of text and its probably all jumbled up but i am very scatter-minded right now and hopefully i'll receive some input.
