Personally I find FW and SW to be equally colorful in fish...

Eh i really cant say i agree with that. If that was the case i would have never gone into saltwater. Think about it, why would someone drop 5x the amount of money on saltwater if the fish were just as colorful?

Exactly. In SW the fish's scales arent visible and they have neon coloring so their body pops under bluish lighting.

Well of course there are some incomparable SW fish. But there are quite a few beautiful FW. Personally, I enjoy the dimly colored and dimly lighted tanks with green. It just seems more soothing (and far less bright for my bedroom lol )

The only thing keeping away from reef tanks are the monthly electricity bill. Initial setup bill is no problem though.
