    Im looking for two screensavers, one being a fireplace and one an aquarium. They gotta be 3D and look rather realistic. I can only find crap or expensive stuff on google. I think I had the trial of the one on apple.com but the text running across kinda kills it. I hope I can get some help in here, it would be pretty fun :)

    The best one I know of is a free demo from http://www.serenescreen.com of an aquarium. Very cool!! You need to download the Apple demo at top of page. *IMPORTANT* Install it as as app, NOT a screensaver! Drag the icon to your apps folder. Keep it in the Dock and hit it and type "testfish" to run it. Hit f for full screen. A lot of options are disabled because it is free. Play with the keyboard short cuts like L, M, double tap space bar etc...

    The free demo screensaver doesn't work well.

    What kind of Mac do you have?

    I posted a screen shot. There is no banner. You really don't think I would suggest downloading something with a banner running across the screen? This one is the best aquarium. When going from "window" view to full screen, the coral changes to a rock that shows a changing clock, calender and website.

    Glad you like it! The "w" keyboard shortcut is hilarious! Impress your friends with it in full wire frame and go on and on about how realistic it is, then switch to full color 3D!

    That is so cute! I love the background noise of the water.
