That's surprising. A big reason for wanting to go marine is the wide variety of colors and interesting fish and creepy crawlies you can get for marine.
Thanks Caryl and Livingart,
I understand that cost and time are the 2 big factors, I guess I was looking for someone to say they've gone marine and glad they did or why they're glad they went with fresh water...
Anyway, I've decided to bite the bullet and go with a marine tank Gotta wait till I get back from holiday in January, but I've started the shopping spree
