    I want to install Marine Aquarium (ver. 2.5) on my iMac but when i went to system preferences to select it, it says it can't. I tried it on my PB and it works fine. Could it be that its only for PPC?
    Their is an update, but of course you have to pay, its $6, which IMO is way over priced considering i bought it for $20...
    Any suggestions?

    Chances are that it is PPC and so will not work on your intel computer. I think it is a bit of a rip that you have to pay to get it to work on your computer.

    System Preference items unfortunately do not run under rosetta.

    Go to their website, serenescene.com and you can download a free update to version 2.6 by using the 2.5 CD.

    I had the same problem. it works now.

    However, the instructions to do this are virtually non existent, go to the download page to download the $5.95 update which will be free if you insert your original CD.

    HTH, good luck!
