A quick look at freshwater aquariums as an affordable alternative to salt water aquariums.

The first is a 150 gallon in a hospital’s playroom for children and the second, a 300 gallon room divider in a restaurant. Freshwater aquariums will save some initial set up costs over salt water as there isn’t as much equipment needed and save on ongoing service as there are fewer products and additives needed to keep it maintained.


Most folks tend to agree that salt water fish are prettier than their fresh counterparts bud if the salt water is slightly out of your budget, freshwater is an excellent option.
Imagine trading in that cluttered bookshelf for a slice of the Great Barrier Reef. Think of replacing that awkwardly positioned lamp in the corner of your office, with a bright and vibrant portion of the Amazon River.
