If you were to buy an aquarium, what would it be? freshwater or saltwater?
I have been thinking about getting an aquarium again. I would rather have freshwater fish since they are easier to care for. Saltwater fish are beautiful, but not as easy to keep alive in my opinion. Also, they are really expensive compared to freshwater fish. I like keeping fish like tetras and guppies in a tank. They are inexpensive, pretty, and easy to manage.
It would be a fresh water aquarium, because they are a lot cheaper and easier to tend to.
I have a small freshwater aquarium and have never had a saltwater aquarium, but would be interested in one for a nano reef
I bought an 110 gallon tank a couple of years ago and set it up as a freshwater aquarium. However, I feel that I have "mastered" the freshwater and it is no longer a challenge to keep. I've grown live plants, went from rocks to sand substrate, rearranged the decor, etc. I think that I've done all that I could with it and I am kinda bored with my bland-colored fish.
I really would love to see coral and brightly colored fish when I come home, plus the challenge of learning about water chemistry in a saltwater tank, etc. So I think that if I bought a tank at this very minute, I would buy a saltwater aquarium.
I already have a 28 gallon freshwater aquarium and would very much like to have a saltwater one as well. The only thing stopping me is I've heard saltwater aquariums require a lot of maintenance.

Is a no-fish tank or aquarium a good idea for a beginner?If a saltwater aquarium is much harder to maintain than a freshwater one, how about an aquarium with only coral and other plants but no fish?
