I agree, I love freshwater because it is reasonably inexpensive compared to saltwater. I could stock a whole tank with plants, fish, and all the fixings for what it costs to buy only a couple saltwater fish.

Agree fresh because pretty easy to maintain (I don't know if SW is easy) and it isn't as expensive as SW. I still like fresh fish and you can breed FW easier.

Saltwater. I enjoy all the gadgets. I'm trying to apply some of the saltwater concepts to my freshwater tank.

Saltwater, I love the color of the fish and the bold lines some have that stick out such as clowns or Aussie tusks. Chromis and damsels are schooling fish.

Well, I have a FW tank but still ticked SW!
I love all the colours of the fishes and the Saltwater Shrimps are just amazing!! So-- a year or two more of experience with fishes and will convert to SW

SW!! Yea its more expensive, but honeslty it doesnt cost so much as people say. Buy smart and do your research and the prices come out pretty low. Also, it is just way more worth it after all the hard work..

Once I get 1000$ I will make a 75G tank SW! Once you get started it doesn't cost as much but it does cost a lot when you start.
