it comes down to taste. there are limitless options for both. with fresh water more people tend to have more tanks. so many different types of fish then you get into breeding and so forth.

i put FW because of how much easier it is to breed a larger variety of fish very interisting IMO

I would think that a FW tank is a better starting place for a beginner, but thats not to say they lack complexity. Ive seen saltwater tanks that are just amazing visually and the fish are on average much more colorful and exotic, but ive also seen freshwater tanks that can give any salt water tank a run for its money.
In the end I would say that the fishkeeping experience depends on how much the fishkeeper is willing to invest in time and effort in his or her tank. No one ever gets a good experience out of anything if they arent willing to make an investment in the hobby. The fishkeeper that attends to thier tanks well and takes the time to do everything properly will have a rewarding experience regardless of the type of tank

But yea... it's about personal taste and interest.
