An aquarium is a vivarium of any size having at least one transparent side in which water-dwelling plants or animals are kept and displayed. Fishkeepers use aquaria to keep fish, invertebrates, amphibians, aquatic reptiles such as turtles, and aquatic plants. The most colorful fish are found in marine habitats. A marine or saltwater aquarium is desired by many aquarists.
A marine aquarium is more difficult to maintain than a freshwater aquarium. Salt, being a corrosive agent, can be damaging to a lot of aquarium equipment. Constant monitoring of the cleanliness of the aquarium, inside and out, is important to the overall appearance of the area. A freshwater system, on the other hand, is much easier to maintain. A weekly cleaning will usually suffice to keep the appearance looking good. There are many freshwater fish that are just as colorful as marine fish and will do very well in a home aquarium. When setting up an aquarium for the first time, a freshwater aquarium is suggested.
