Editors' Review

SereneScreen Marine Aquarium is a realistic, high-definition screensaver that converts your computer screen into a vibrant, colorful saltwater aquarium. You can choose from 27 different exotic fish species--from the Addis Butterflyfish to the Yellow Tang--and SereneScreen can display up to 30 fish at a time, with an easy interface for creating and customizing your own sets of fish (including an option for random species). You also have settings for autopanning, framerate, iTunes playlists, and a bubble column (from a virtual aerator, with optional bubble sound).

SereneScreen has an optional "crystal" paperweight in the tank, too, which you can use to display a calendar, clock (digital or analog), or a custom image (the app suggests a logo, but you can use any image). SereneScreen's superwide virtual tank also now supports up to three monitors simultaneously.

Screensavers are of course unnecessary with modern displays (since screen burn is no longer a problem) and the Mac OS comes with multiple free screensavers built in. That said, if you're looking for an entertaining and impressively eye-catching way to occupy your idle monitors, SereneScreen is a great choice.

    "BEWARE. Dishonest company."

    August 30, 2010   |   By Rusty_Canvas

    Version: SereneScreen Marine Aquarium 3.0.1

    Pros

    There are no pros. Only lies.

    Cons

    Will not uninstall.

    Summary

    BEWARE After following the installation instructions I did not want this in my computer anymore because they lied about offering a free version. I tried to uninstall it and it would not uninstall. I called Apple to make sure I was doing it right, and I was. This is deliberately designed to be difficult to remove from your computer.

    "Excellent screensaver"

    October 05, 2007   |   By Ron Taube

    Version: SereneScreen Marine Aquarium 3.0.1

    Pros

    I had a registered version of 2.0 and when I saw the clock calender option I did the upgrade for $5.95 Well worth it. You can customize it beter than before and on my new intel imac it is positively dazzling. You don't have to change the water or feed the fish and it's just fun to watch sometimes when you're tired of your word processor.

    "easier than keeping real fish"

    June 28, 2007   |   By gavandtra

    Version: SereneScreen Marine Aquarium 3.0.1

    Pros

    Basically this has got to be about the best looking screensaver going. Well worth getting a serial number for it as the increase in options over the demo is quite dramatic.

    Cons

    The screensaver does not engage properly, but you can launch it as an app and get an aquarium that way.

    "Demo doesn't really work as screensaver without purchase."

    April 23, 2007   |   By timtimes

    Version: SereneScreen Marine Aquarium 3.0.1

    Pros

    Looks really good.

    Cons

    In ADDITION too the stated limitation of three types of fish, the screen saver will not engage properly (automatically) unless you PAY FOR IT. Worth paying for if this is your thing, but the explanation of limitations is misleading.
