I agree with the personal taste. I am a slatie, but I love the scaping "themes" and variations I have seen in the FW section.

It all comes down to personal taste. I've seen a lot of mind boggling reef setups, but then I look at Travis Simonson's tank and it blows the reefs away.

A planted tank with Africans, whether you are salty or freshy...that is impressive.

That tank makes me want to be a fish..... I became a freshy because it was easier for a beginner but both have tons to offer.

Saltwater tanks require a lot of experience and are not suitable for beginners. For a beginner, I would recommend a freshwater community tank.

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.

The best fish keeping experience is the one where fish don't die.

I actually really like both fw and sw.
