Saltwater tanks are typically high maintenance, especially in the beginning, Gourami care on the other hand is very similar to Betta care... In the end it really is up to you and how much time and finances you are willing to put into the care of your tanks... Personally though, my preference is Gourami...

Saltwater isn't necessarily harder. Just more work and money involved.

Gouriami! I'm a fan of fish that swim slower, because watching them is relaxing. I picture clownfish to dart everywhere lol

From what I've been told and read salt water is much more expensive to set up, but once you have it running it's not that much harder than freshwater. But it's much more unforgiving.

Personally I love gourami's, I have a two post blue gourami that I love! I've had him almost 5 years now.
