The 3D Fish School Screensaver is an attractive way for users to transform their computer screens into burbling aquariums. The simple interface and realistic graphics make this program a pleasure to use, but the limitations of the trial version are a somewhat significant drawback.

The trial version of the software allows users to choose between one freshwater and one saltwater scene; the full version includes additional options. Users can customize such features as the number and types of fish, amount of bubbles, background, and lighting. The screensaver features both bubble and wave sounds, each of which can be turned off or adjusted independently. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate, and the graphics of the screensaver itself are fairly realistic and come as close to simulating a real aquarium as a computer program can. Multimonitor support is offered for users who wish to work and enjoy their virtual aquarium at the same time.

The only major drawbacks to the program are the limitations of the trial version. In addition to limiting users to two underwater scenes from which they can choose, the trial version of the software prevents users from saving changes to the program's settings. Trial users are also subjected periodically to ads encouraging them to purchase the program. The ability to customize the contents of the aquarium is one of the program's coolest features, so the limitations of the trial version are pretty serious. Still, the program installs and uninstalls easily, so even the limited trial version is worth trying.

"It's a relaxing screensaver program."

November 24, 2009  |  By krazywildman

 |  Version: 3D Fish School Screensaver 4.92

Pros

The program itself is getting better now over the past couple of years. It's look is fairly close to being real and with the new graphic'sthe look is getting a lot better.

Cons

The ocesn grapkic's are not as impreesive as the fresh water and could use some more work

Summary

The program is a good one for people who like the ocesn and fresh water rivers. It's great for young children and most likely young people. I have enjoyed using this program to show my grandson what the fish look like in our oacens and rivers. All 9in all it a good program to install for a screensaver.

"Way to many pop-ups on the free version."

November 18, 2009  |  By leebaker

 |  Version: 3D Fish School Screensaver 4.92

Pros

Liked the fish and different pools very colorfull

Cons

Free version has way to many pop-ups limit the amount of fish but don't have commercial every 10 seconds and turn off the sound

Summary

I thought the screen saver was one of the most colorfull I have seen.
the fish were very bright and looked very life like.
I did not like the pop-ups popping up every 10 seconds limit the amount of fish and so on but cut down on the pop-ups.
I removed it from my machine due to the constant pop-ups.
I know you want to sell it but come-on.
