Want to go saltwater is it hard or not?

I'm thinking about going to saltwater but I've heard it's hard to maintain.

As long as you keep up with weekly water changes it really isn't that hard.

It's not hard. You just need to be dedicated to it. Keeping an eye on your water parameters and adjusting to what is needed is important. I would say it's more expensive than hard.

As above you just need to test your water regularly also depends on what you want if it's fish only it's quite simple, it's when you start going into corals things start getting a little bit more complicated and more expensive to run.
