Performance

This program tries hard to do a good job at being an aquarium. It has several unique "tanks" (ocean views), but in the end, the backgrounds are blurry, and the fish, while very sharp and clear (in contrast to the blurry coral they are swimming through, which is bad), are usually far away (i.e., small), and a bit cartoonish. Even at maximum frames-per-second, you can see them flicker as they move. Something like Dream Aquarium (free trial) shows that you can have an aquarium that looks real. This one does not. If it is free, try it, but I would not pay for this one. Does NOT look as real as others.

A very relaxing piece of software to watch. There are four oceans to view at your option. I find the colors and species of the Coral Sea to be the best. It also identifies all of the species, if you so desire.

Fun for the price

on 9/25/2007

Well, for 'free' you can't beat it. I had a rebate for the full purchase price. It is fun. The picture isn't 'quiet' as clear as I thought it would be, but it's still great. My kids love it and we have the clown fish set as the one it follows so I don't have to keep 'looking for Nemo'!
