Either one is FB. You'll need to rent either a roto-hammer or concrete
corer to get into the concrete. Then either technique is a slamdunk. Your local
hardware store will probably have the all-thread and the epoxy and not the
expansion bolts so the former would be easier.
There's not much stress in a small tower installation like this so you
don't need anything exotic; i.e. special epoxy.
