"Excellent Simulation!"

December 29, 2012  |  By redrobin62

 |  Version: Sim Aquarium 3.4.B42

Pros

Realistic fish behaviour and colorings.
Realistic water and lights. Feels like water could come pouring out of your monitor at any time!
Depth of the aquarium is greater than other simulations. You can also view the aquarium from above.
The sound of the bubbling water, waves and ripples are very relaxing.
It's free. Yep. When you buy the coral reef for $14.95 there's a rebate for $15. That means they actually give you 5 cents for buying it!

Cons

Two or more fish of the same species look exactly the same - unrealistic.
You can tap the screen to rouse fish if you have a touch screen monitor but it also brings up the menu.
The lights are probably too bright. Need to be subdued more or give the option for night viewing. Dusk and early morning options would also be sweet.
Fish shadows do exist but they can barely be seen. The fish has to be very close to the substrate and still it's barely visible.
Wish they had a fiddler crab, tiger shrimp or rock lobster.

Summary

Worth every penny especially since it's free (with the current rebate). It's the most richly-detailed virtual aquarium on the market. Hopefully, in the next iterations, the species will have variations like they do with some of the fishes in Dream Aquarium.

"Motions Not As Realistic As They Could Be"

November 17, 2012  |  By TC141

 |  Version: Sim Aquarium 3.4.B40

Pros

The graphics are good. Things look realistic.

Cons

As the title says, the motions are obvious "giveaways" that detract from the realism of the program.

"Free but ads pop up all the time"

August 02, 2012  |  By ilthomas29

 |  Version: Sim Aquarium 3.3.B33

Pros

Beautiful screensaver

Cons

After a minute, ads pop up to buy more fish so I don't get to enjoy the screensaver.

Summary

I liked it but uninstalled it because there was no point if I couldn't enjoy it. I tried the settings but there was no way to disable the ad unless you bought it.
