To say one or the other is 'better' is like saying pepsi is better than coke, or vice versa. It's all about what you prefer. For me, its planted tanks. For some, its reefs. Others, its african cichlid tanks. There are millions of other tanks as well. So, my answer is neither, though my preference is FW.

I love fish...period! There are challenges and rewards for both type of tanks. My goal is to have all type of tanks including a nice planted tank in the future.

Freshwater. It's more basic and tranquil, rather then saltwater, which is neon and active... I thought fish were supposed to lower your blood pressure... Not the opposite! Lol. Just IMO.

I'd definitely love to have a few Iwagumi or ADA planted tanks though, CRS and microrasboras/microdevario/boraras are awesome little fish
I concur

Anyone who thinks FW is easy needs to try running a high tech nano tank and keeping everything in balance.

I'm also with 'rook... it isn't that 1 is better than the other. There are a myriad of challenging setups on both sides that can bring a lot of enjoyment.

Salt is amazing always learning new things, always finding new things, and the fish are way cooler anyways

I'm more into SW because of the brighter colors I seem to find and the beautiful corals are really what gets me nowadays.

yeah, I guess my taste in FW fish is a little less expensive... it's true that discus can really get up there...

On AVERAGE I bet saltwater tanks cost 3 times as much as freshwater tanks
