I like it. It's like looking at a real aquarium with artificial lights.
I'm surprised other reviews are so negative. I think it's decent for a free app. Essentially, it's a looped video capture of a fish tank. The video is standard definition and reasonably clear, complete with bubble sound effects. The tank that they recorded is using artificial lighting, hence the review about the strange colors. In my opinion, the lighting is appropriate for an "aquarium" in a computer. The length of the video is long enough not to draw too much attention to the video looping. The CPU usage is very moderate, averaging about 8% on my year-old Macbook Pro. The only features to speak of are allowing full screen and controlling the volume of the bubbles. I think that's just fine for free.
I did find a bug that's unfortunate for dual monitor setups. When you set the fish tank to full screen, the mouse pointer is not visible on your other monitor.
If you've ever had an aquarium, I think you'll appreciate this simple app. Try it out.
Seriously, don't bother
Every review here is completely correct. This is not a "professionally-filmed fish tank video" and it is not "full HD quality video" any way you slice it. So who cares if you can enable a "dual screen function that allows you to enjoy the app on one screen while you work or play on the other"?
Just this once, trust the collective. As distrustful of 'them' as I usually am, they were 100% right. Stop reading reviews and forget this app ever entered your mind! Do something you won't regret later! Or do something you *will* regret! Do anything! Just don't waste your precious time by downloading this app and insisting on finding out for yourself that yes, as a matter of fact, it is not a "professionally-filmed fish tank video" and it is not "full HD quality video" any way you slice it!
Smooth and entertaining
This application runs quite smoothly, and I like that it can be set as your desktop picture while you work. The transition between the start of the clip and the end is fairly smooth. I don't see why other users are complaining, because fish tanks usually look blurry when you look through the glass. Do those negative critics even HAVE fish tanks? I thought it was a beautiful touch to my desktop.
