FW mostly because I'm less likely to screw it up

I really like the look of saltwater but I am just getting back into the hobby and I need to perfect FW before I take the plunge into SW, no pun intended.

I prefer freshwater more because I prefer a larger amount (and reasonably large variety) of smaller fish vs a small number of larger fish in a tank.

no, I'm just saying some ppl just a have a smaller number of larger fish in a fw tank, like oscars. not trying to criticize at all.

Freshwater can be just as difficult as saltwater depending on what type of set up. A lot of those amano-style tanks require a lot of work.

Saltwater all the way! I've had FW my whole childhood...and we probably were not taking proper care of them since we just fed them daily and rarely did any water changes...we still have many goldfish for our pond and a small 10g with a couple odd fish left that dont seem to die ever! We did have a guppy tank once that i really enjoyed mainly cause they bread like crazy so there was always babies

I like the saltwater better because there is always surprises....im still finding new creatures coming out of my liverock from my tank thats about a year and a half now. There is always new and different fish/corals in the saltwater fish store i go to and i find all the hard work doing water tests and stuff definitely pays off when corals grow/multiply. It's like a little reward
