    ohh okay so basically it takes them more time to adjust to the tank and changes that are made in the tank than it does with fresh water fish?=D

    I don't own one personally but I do know that you need more equipment for a saltwater tank and larger sized tanks. The fish are generally more expensive as well depending on their size, generally the older and larger the fish the more they will cost. I have heard that they are a lot of work compared to freshwater tanks but well worth it in the end. You'll probably have to save a lot, but I think it would be beautiful. The saltwater fish are a little more sensitive to environmental changes than our lovable betta friends

    Well if you have a salt water tank you might be able to pull it off having a scallop or oyster. The petstore where I live sells flame scallops. You just cannot have starfish in the tank with them cause they will eat them. Some crabs are also predators of starfish. You would need to feed your shellfish algae though which is a lot of work sometimes. I worked on a shellfish farm so I grew all my own live algae not sure how you feed them as pets, though I assume the petstores have some type of food at the for them
