I do not think so. IMO, the main reason people leave SW is because they under-estimate the work and exspense involved or simply get too busy to properly maintain their tanks. Noobs are often discouraged because they fail to follow proper advice and things go bad quickly. It is not for the inpatient.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I don't know if this counts, but I'm a salty at heart for years- but I'm intrigued by a freshwater pond outdoors. I think I'm going to take the plunge and go freshwater!!

And even outside of my circumstance I would venture to say YES!

I love SW. But some of the FW tanks I have seen are awesome and get me thinking! I doubt I will go FW, but I might do a pond.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I believe most people start off fresh and looking for a challenge go to SW. Lando , you are right about the patience part. Seen it many times


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

I went from FW to SW also. I just really liked the fact that things grow on their own out of the rocks and its just so cool watching a tank with animals in the whole thing working together. I still have FW but I definately pay more attention to my SW now.
