Although reef tanks are amazing, and the marine fish are much more colorful than freshwater fish...IMO, it's much more costly and difficult to achieve a succesful tank.

With all the equipment you need to invest in(wet/dry, portein skimmer, refugium, calcium reactor, etc.) and the aquascaping problems you will face(coral aggression), the costly live rock and the VERY high lighting you need to keep everything alive. Plus, reef tanks are easily over-stocked.

And I thought keeping a freshwater tank was costly and hardwork! :roll:
