Fresh Water -VS- Salt Water

I think FW are better! there is plenty of choice, and FW has soooooo much more charecter, I would rather have a betta than the dumb page 3 model (no offence page 3 models lol, i bet u get payed a load) of the fish world the clownfish, sure they are gracefull, and colourfull, but Fw are more real, IMO SWs look like theyve had plastic surgery on every part of theyre body, they dont look natural theyre tacky,
and the theyres the price $70 dollars for a clownfish!!! when you can get a perfectly nice betta or clown loach with the same colours for a few quid!!! the only Saltwater fish that i like better than its freshwater cousins is this wierd cat fish (it smiled at me) It did that puppy dog thing (pick me pick me) and it wasss soooooooooooooooooooooo good, it was also, i think iot must have been trying to escape too because it kept being chased by one of those wierd things at the bottom with a dalmation pattern
sure, if someone offered me a SW tank (complete) id snap at its heels (meaning id take it lol)
If I had a biiiiiiiiiig house and i was loaded (rich) i'd have SW too, but pride of place in the living room, theyre would be a big fat FW tank with loads of nice FW fishies in it,
id get that exact cat fish that smiled at me too lol and put it in a big tank with a cricket bat with that mean thing that was attacking it, lol
What do you think??

all i can say is it's a good thing you posted this in the fw forum 'cause those who keep sw could get pretty defensive about the remarks. I agree about the clownfish though, ever since nemo everyone wants a clownfish. When you look at ALL the options and variety sw has it's as cool as fw. Which is better looking is a matter of opinion. i love both but don't want to spend the money for sw. I'll leave that to the big commercial aquariums where i can spend a few bucks to enjoy all there hard work and money spent.

I would have a SW tank if I had the money, time, and room for one(or more ). I would say neither "wins" though.
Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)

IDK but i think that FW and SW are just as pretty as either of them

i mean with SW you have the Lionfish and with FW you can get really agressive fish just like it so i say nither really is the best, although i really think that SW fish have better color blends than some(keyword=SOME!) of the FW fish

except all angelfish are really pretty(FW and SW)

so like i said, niether are THE best

Post this in the lounge instead of the FW forum and you would get a true reading of the people using this sight. SW is my preferred choice. I have had many FW tanks over the years and still have one but the SW is much more satisfying to me.

I think that freshwater is just perferred more because alot of people dont have the resources needed to delve into sw. Very expensive.
We are far to young and clever
-too* in retrospect the irony hurts

This seems like a trolling thread so, I'll keep my response short. I keep both and love both equally. They both have their ups and downs but that's what keeps it interesting.

$70 dollars for a clownfish!!!
More like $15.

And I agree with Fluff. I have kept both, and I like both equally the same.
To say SW looks fake is unbelievable though. You obviouslly haven't seen enough SW fish.
