Freshwater fish have a couple distinct advantages over their marine counterparts that can make all the difference for pet parents new to the ins-and-outs of aquarium ownership. Most importantly, a freshwater aquarium is generally easier to maintain than a saltwater aquarium. Before investing in a freshwater aquarium, you should familiarize yourself with all the steps required to properly care for freshwater aquatic life. Last, freshwater fish tanks can cost less to set-up than a saltwater aquarium, but the maintenance costs over time don’t vary significantly.
