Question freshwater or saltwater

hey guys, i just bought a 55g tank 2 weeks ago, i have it cycling now, I really want to go with the salt water( i like the selection of fish), i was wondering how would i start the process ?, i know it will probably cost more than an fresh water tank to upkeep, but being a beginner which way u think i should go ?

freshwater.


the first step to saltwater is months of research and planning.


freshwater should include some research (esp. before purchasing any fish) and planning as well, but in my opionion not nearly as much as salt.

and yes, the price differences are completely different.

i think your could get a nice tank going with live plants, a decent size school of neon tetras and a handful of cherry red shrimp.

ask questions, and research and you will most likely love the hobby.

Is it currently set up as a saltwater or freshwater? You say you have it cycling now.... As a saltwater or freshwater? What type of equipment?
