Terminal Strip or Fuse Block?

I already have a fuse block for setting up my lights and a bildge pump I had planned to install, but I was given advice to use a terminal block in another thread. Could I use the fuse block I already have? Or should i use the terminal strip? Its going to house the wiring for the FF/GPS, bildge, and the navigation lights. Thanks in advance.

Personally, I prefer the fuse block. I am assuming we are talking a bluesea fuse block with built in ground strip.

Use a terminal block to join groups of wires together.
Use a fuse block to provide over-current protection in your electrical distribution system. Over-current protection is usually centralized and located near the power source.
