Salt v Fresh

Would you say salt is the Rolls Royce, and Fresh is the Ford, I have had both, I get more pleasure from fresh now, what do you think?

SW is Rolls only cause it cost more Some FW tanks can be the Highend Fords if done right.

In my opinion only thing salt has going for it is the bright colors. FW offers a more comfortable feeling if that makes sense. I feel you can do so much more with FW. I only do FW now and don't feel I am lacking anything.

I like how fresh water changes soo quickly while salt water there's a satisfaction I get from slowly growing out my corals.

Nope...I could have been driving a BMW for what I've spent on my planted fw setups in the last year.. a smart, patient, well researched individual could most likely setup and run a successful > 20 gallon reef tank for what I've wasted on stupid planted stupid tanks with more stupid than smart..

Yes, but my salt water tank had equipment that was the equivalent of top fin filter along with odyssey lights.
