Hey Mr.Micro,

Quote:
If freshwater is a planet, saltwater is the universe. After all, it usually starts with a fish, in a bowl, on a table.
I have to say thats the best way I've had that put.

yeah,i once saw a saltwater fish for 300 dollars
I recently saw a 3" Volitan Lionfish selling for $199.00 at the local Petland. They also had a Blue Hepatus for $129.00. I do not buy my fish from there as obviously they are ridiculous in they're prices. But they have under-qualified staff, especially the 'manager' and the tanks are horrible!! Truly embarrassing if i were them. I do like to look when getting dog treats there.. it's a bitter-sweet pleasure.

I guess my point is $$$$ isn't always relative. However, it's a safe bet that saltwater fish will ALWAYS be a bigger investment then freshwater. After all a freshwater hobbyist can, if chose too, walk into the LFS and buy Neons 3 for $5, some Mollies, Angels and maybe a Pleco, and have a tank full of fish for maybe a $50 - $75 investment.. Saltwater will get you 1 fish and a couple of crabs, snails and maybe a choco starfish.

I am minimizing the scenario just to make a point.

Exactly! I paid $39 for my juvi and he's now like 6" - 7". I love watching him grow and his fins are perfect!

I like saltwater much better, I have seen some nice freshwater but for the most part in my opinion freshwater fish are gold, silver, black or white just not enough color for me

There's tons of color in freshwater. Guppies are very colorful, and orange laser cories. They're not drab, IMO.

I'm not agreeing that there's no color in FW, because that's not true, but the colors are different in SW. There's an obvious difference, making it easy to form a preference.

Freshwater

I have to say that freshwater is the best. I think it is much easier to handle
