Default I'm torn - better for a bedroom tank?

Probably the second tank I set up will be a five footer of some description in the master bedroom. I had been thinking of it as a Tropheus tank but I also really want a tang community (C. leptosoma, A. calvus, a Juli species, maybe a shellie, maybe L. leleupi). If I don't put the tropheus in the bedroom then I'd probably get them into the dining room.

So which kind of tank would you want in your bedroom (between these two) and why?

TIA,
Tony

I think a tanganyikan community tank would be great addition to the bedroom.

Trophs are not a very relaxing fish to have in the bedroom. I had to move mine out in favor of a more relaxing tank.

Yea I would agree. A community tank would be much better suited for a bed room. Unless your not in your bed room alot moving or walking around it may make the fish skittish to movement

I had a Malawi Peacock/Hap tank in my bedroom I was bored to tears with. I like the Tropheus tank in the bedroom rather than the Peacocks...I like a little chaos. My perception is that any tank is relaxing to a certain point. Although they have stunning colors, Peacocks lack a little in the personality dept imho

I once stood oh so close to the edge, only to see some old friends of mine looing up and waving at me. I since have backed away
