Re: Is saltwater tank harder to maintain than Freshwater?
To my knowledge, yes. Somebody else here had the same question. When I went to the pet store, the sales clerk warned against getting a saltwater tank unless I had a lot of experience maintaining freshwater fish already because a saltwater aquarium is that much more complicated. Also, it is much more expensive. My 55 gallon tank and stand came to $89.00, but we weren't finished with the setup until $1300.00 dollars or so later. Of course, that includes fake plants and fake coral, but it ended up costing quite a bundle before all was said and done. We just got our "real" fish yesterday, a Dog Face Puffer. It is so incredible to watch and keep that it has made the investment well worth it.
