While its true that hatcheries and some home aquarists breed SW fish(such as neon gobies, clownfish, some angelfish etc.), it is much easier to do so in freshwater. This is what provides the challenge in FW. In SW, the challenge is keeping the "delicate"(okay, I know there are plenty of exceptions to that one) little organisms alive and in a natural enviroment...with the high tech lights, filters etc. In FW, you challenge is satisfying the fish so they will breed, and then try your hand at raising fry to maturity. Of course, some SW fish are almost as hardy as FW fish...and some of the FW fish are just as delicate as SW fish.

    But for a beginner, FW is best. That way, your fish don't die if you change the water without unplugging your heater, or forget how your filter works. Get a little more experience, and two roads lay ahead of you...more FW challenges, or Sw.

    Does anyone know who I quoted just then? Someone told me about a baseball(?) player who said this, but I forgot the name.

    Since I only keep Fw, this may be pretty one sided, but certainly wasn't mean't to be!

    I would wait for the job and time then. I to have owned both styles of tanks. Matter of fact I have maintained up to six tanks at one time. Saltwater tanks are beautiful, but the up keep is incredible. Spec is right, every morning, every night. Fresh water and brach can be just as interesting and more relaxing. I like Dicus and chiclids. Actually, I like them all.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
