Editors' Review

+
This screensaver shows the serene beauty of the underwater world. The installation is fast, and Marine Aquarium launches on your desktop in seconds. The screensaver has fish, coral, plants, and other underwater objects. The water sound is a great feature that makes you feel like you're looking at the underwater world from a bathyscaphe. Most of the screensaver settings are basic, such as sound volume and screen resolution, but you can also add fish from the list. The program turns out to be educational, since the entry for each fish lists its full name, Latin name, location, and other facts. Its realistic representation puts Marine Aquarium head and gills above its competitors.

"High quality, relaxing screen saver"

March 02, 2013  |  By richrider

 |  Version: Marine Aquarium 3.1

Pros

Love the music and the "video" is somewhat mesmerizing.

Cons

Should "turn off" if you hit ANY key rather than only the "Escape" key.

Summary

Price is right. One can change again if one tires of it. So far, I haven't.

"One of the Best Aquarium Screensavers"

November 17, 2012  |  By TC141

 |  Version: Marine Aquarium 3.1

Pros

Graphics are good, motions are OK. Options are good, and music is good. No apparent stabillity issues (trial version).

Cons

Fish motions could be more realistic.

Summary

This is a slam-dunk compared to AquaScape, 3D Aquarium, and SIM. To me, it is slightly better than Dream Aquarium-- the motions aren't as good as dream, but the graphics are more 3-D and realistic.

"I'm Impressed!"

February 02, 2012  |  By northern_star_52

 |  Version: Marine Aquarium 3.1

Pros

Very Relaxing View. It is like having an Aquarium without the cleanup. Previous users wished the music could be turned off. My version allows me to turn off music and just have sound of bubbles. Nice.

Cons

None that I know of.

"it's ok for free."

November 18, 2011  |  By bacardistuff

 |  Version: Marine Aquarium 3.1

Pros

Colors are bright, fish are quite realistic!

Cons

screensaver hangs up at times, the music is a nuisance (why not bubbles?), pressing any key will not clear the screen - you have to hit the escape key.

Summary

it's ok for free.

"One of my favorite screensavers."

September 16, 2011  |  By cngamer

 |  Version: Marine Aquarium 3.1

Pros

This can entertain kids for hours, especially if you are running in high resolution with a good enough graphics card. It looks so real at times! The full version has many fish to choose from and many settings to customize.

Cons

Just make sure you set it correctly if you're using a widescreen monitor so that you can get the full enjoyment out of it.

Summary

Pretty and low cost way to be nicely entertained for hours by a screensaver. Almost realistic at times.

"Very vivid & lifelike. Easy to install."

September 11, 2011  |  By Novella

 |  Version: Marine Aquarium 3.1

Pros

The fish pre-selected are a nice variety and enough to be swimming around. The overal look is very life-like, looks just like an aquarium without having to have all the expense & fuss!

Cons

Only plays one song. I had hoped for just the sound of soft bubbles like an aquarium. So I just mute my computer sound.

Summary

The free verson is a delight to have as a screensaver. No fuss, no muss.

"Real looking fish, in a beautiful reef setting."

February 16, 2010  |  By sherbisness

 |  Version: Marine Aquarium 3.1

Pros

The Demo was excellent, saw many types of ocean fish that are reef dwellers. natural fish movements. Very good sound effects, bubbles, and relaxing music that you can choose. Very relaxing experience. I might buy it.

Cons

No cons really, but personally I prefer tropical fish,

Summary

I like Marine Aquarium 3 very much. The Demo was excellent, and easy to use and understand. For people that want a realistic Marine reef screen saver, I would highly recommend it. Personally I chose to buy Dream Aquarium because it is also excellent and has the tropical fish that I prefer.
