I would say it all depends on what you personally are looking for in a fishkeeping experience. I prefer freshwater as of now, because that is what I am familiar with. But saltwater is definitely appealing to me too.
I think any and all can be the best experience. It all depends on what your goals are. If you want a challenge, a relaxing hobby, to create the most natural environment etc.
I will do a SW tank one day....but for now I am a freshie with salty dreams.
i would have to say it's secret answer d: the same experience. we all get the same thing out of creating our own little eco-system to play god over.
bow to me puny fish
whether it's SW, BW or FW it's the enjoyment of spending time on something that takes your mind off of the troubles in the world. to come home after working hard all day and just watch and listen to the aquarium and be able to relax for a while.
If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
