out of curiuosity

I've had alot of time to think at work this morning and a question popped in my mind. Does anybody know the ratio of freshwater aquariusts to marine aquariusts? I think it's be interesting to see everyones guesstimate.

There's probably more freshwater, cause as cool as saltwater is, it's very expensive!

Thats where i think you might be wrong Lauren. I think that Saltwater has a lot of people that just have them.

I've been told I could have set up a reef cheaper than my high tech planted tank... so, its not cost.

I'd say its easily 3:1, at least around here.

I'm going 5:1. Alot of people wanting fish stay away from SW only due to the fact that they hear it's hard and expensive, when it's really not either. Both take good care and time.

I feel a poll might get better results, but for the record, salty here.

Salt all the way for me. But I would say fresh has salt beat for number of people with fresh set ups, cuz I feel everyone started with freshwater tanks ie. goldfish, bettas or neon tetras and that just acted as a gateway to move on to salt or at least to explore the hobbie further and decide one or the other if not both. I know I started with a single goldfish when I was 8 and then I was hooked. hahahaha Maybe hooked isn't the best word to use on a site about fish, well I'm sure the fish wouldn't appreciate it.
