Are Freshwater or Saltwater Aquariums a Better Fit for You? By House of Fins

IntroductionHouse of Fins is a premier aquarium installation and maintenance firm that specializes in acquiring beautiful, exotic, species from all over the world. Located in Greenwich, Connecticut, and run by Robert Bray, House of Fins takes the time to help customers decide between freshwater and saltwater aquariums.

First-time aquarium owners have to make a lot of decisions. They need to decide on how much space to allot to the tank and how large the tank is going to be, what kind of equipment theyre looking for, how much they want to spend on equipment, and last but not least, what kind of marine life they want to put in their aquarium.

AquariumsChoosing between saltwater fish and freshwater fish and the corresponding tanks is one of the first choices an aquarium owner has to make. Beginners are generally advised to consider freshwater fish and tanks as they are easier to maintain and have lower costs. Saltwater aquariums, on the other hand, are more expensive and more complicated to maintain.

Aquariums, whether freshwater or saltwater, can each be set up in three ways. Freshwater aquariums are usually tropical, cold water, or brackish tanks, while saltwater aquariums are usually fish only, fish only with live rock, or reef tanks. The cost of the aquarium depends on what kind of set-up a customer chooses.
