Description:: The Marine Aquarium is one of those apps that truly needs to be seen in person to be appreciated. Luckily you can download a free demo from SereneScreen’s site, including a standalone version you can launch as an application. While paying for a screensaver goes against every freeware-loving bone in my body, I have no problem paying for an app that is the result of real effort and skill. I think anyone who owns a high quality LCD display owes it to themselves to at least download the demo and give it a try. Three years later, I am happy to say the Marine Aquarium still elicits “oohs” and “ahhs” from clients as they pass sby.

Rating: 9 out of 10
Price: $19.95

Pros: Beautifully rendered fish and environment, can choose from 28 different fish, new date and time feature is a great idea

Cons: Some different background options would make a great app an amazing one.

i don't care how beautiful it looks.

i'd have to be out of my mind to drop 20 bucks on a screensaver.

At really high resolutions, the coral doesn't look so great...

Brought back found memories, though :)
