PostSubject: Different types of aquariums   Sat Sep 27, 2008 9:48 am

What's the difference between saltwater and freshwater?

Whereas freshwater fish are found in rivers, streams, ponds and lakes, saltwater fish are collected from oceans and seas.

As such, their natural environment is quite stable and they do not readily adapt to major changes in water chemistry or temperature.

In addition, since nearly all saltwater fish and invertebrates are captured in the wild (many freshwater fish are either tank or pond raised), there are greater risks associated with handling and shipping.

The risks, shipping and collecting costs, and supply-and-demand also make saltwater specimens more expensive than their freshwater counterparts.

Are saltwater fish hard to keep?

Just as in freshwater, there are some species that are usually quite sturdy and some that challenge even the experts.

In addition, the individual specimen should be observed closely before purchase. Sometimes an individual or group of even the most hardy variety will have been subjected to just one too many changes, and will become weak or sickly or will refuse to eat.
