High tanks if your talking about that. Upward/cylinders ones don't give my fish swimming room.

Freshwater most def, but I would like to try saltwater, but it's just too expensive and you need way too much equipment!!!

This is such a common misconception ...It really is no more difficult than fresh ..Expenses are really up to you,,if you have the tank(most expensive part) already then you can set up a fish only for next to nothing..Yes ,the fish are usually more expensive ,but so much nicer to look at IMHO

But that's only if you want a fish only tank. But most saltwater enthusiasts want coral and thats where we jump dramatically in cost and maintenance.

Fresh water.... BUT I'm crossing over to the salt world. Just ordered my 29 gallon bio cube so maybe I'll change my mind. But for now, FRESHWATER.
