well..after experiencing the freshwater hobby..maybe it's time to advance ...time and budget permitting...or if you want to take a more intermediate step..you could try cichlids...unless you've already tried ur hand at that...i've never done SW but from what i've read it's much more expensive and involved but ultimately worth it.

All depends on what you like, how involved your willing to be, and what you can afford.

I converted from many years of experience in FW to SW and there is so much more to learn in SW. It is also much more expensive and demanding, but it is worth it. Since a SW tank is normally bigger than FW tank, therefore it requires more space. The only downside is that SW fish are more prone to parasites and they are harder to get rid of. You can't dose your main tank and must have a separate QT.
