SW for me.

I agree with most, it happens to be whatever floats your boat. Saltwater does however increase buoyancy though

For me a planted freshwater tank looks more natural in a home than saltwater. Having owned both i can say saltwater is alot more expensive, harder to maintain, but has alot of diffrent corals inverts and fish. Freshwater is very easy, relatively cheaper, hardier fish, and has some crazy fish such as butterfly fish and shrimp and snails, crabs, lobsters, and even clams! Freshwater is my favorite because it looks more natural in the home, cheaper, easier, and plants are awesome! and CHEAP!

I only have saltwater now but I have to admit.. The planted freshwater tanks look stunning when they are done well. And I can't say that saltwater is tougher cause that whole CO2 thing sounds intimidating as all get out. My favorite fish is still a betta that I bought at walmart 10 years ago that lived with me in a vase through my divorce. Little guy lived over 4 years. But I prefer our saltwater stuff just for all the variety. You never know what you're going to see next.

CO2 isn't too tough once you have it figured out -- but balancing a high light/high tech planted tank can be a very difficult juggling act.

To me getting the salt water perfect is hard! And then one wrong move and all the living things in the saltwater tank are dead. Freshwater allows for more margin for error, which has saved me countless times! And did i mention gouramis are awesome? Very cool shape, cool colors, and great attitudes! I got a red flame gourami a few days ago and he is awesome!

As I have not yet tried SW i have to say that a FW planted is at the top my list. Soon though I will be able to say I have both SW and planted
