This is very good I must say. You get a number of 40 species of fish including twenty tanks to put them in. The fish are life like more than the leading competitive software. You can interact with the fish by tapping the glass of the aquarium, which I must say is pretty realistic. Also this software has a zoom feature, which allows you to zoom into a fish and follow it's where about. Would be the best but there are two flaws to this software. Flaw number 1: This software is absolutely useless with any other graphics card other than ATI or N-VIDIA. Flaw number 2: Unlike PC Aquarium with this software disappointingly it does not have the mp3 feature, which allows background music. Other than these two flops this is very good. I guarantee if you have a decent graphics card this is sure to be the best 3-D Aquarium screensaver to exist!

This has been keeping me busy for quite some time. I love to watch the shark eat the sardines and other fish that I give him.

The ocean life is so realistic, even my friends are amazed with it. The only downsides are:

1. You can't have background music.

2. You have to pay for upgrades and add-ons.

But overall, it's pure entertainment.

The animation appears to be cell animation not sprites from 3D models. The fish, while you can have many selected, really bog down the system resources and make the movements jerky and not at all as good as the competitors very smooth and sophisticated animation. This is nice for looking at pictures of a few flat fish being moved around colorful backgrounds, but does not at all convey the feeling of real fish swimming.

Good, but Marine Aquarium is MUCH better. 24 July 2006
By Steven A. Godun - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is not a bad screen saver but if you're looking for a really authentic fish experience, there are better alternatives. The fish, particularly the smaller ones, don't render very well when they're perpendicular to the viewer (that is, when they're swimming towards or away from you). I've even seen them completely disappear. It's very apparent that the fish are basic models with simple photographic skins mapped to them; compared to the much more detailed fish in the SereneScreen Marine Aquarium, the shapes and motion of the fish are downright primitive. Although this is an OS X screen saver (NOTE: there's an Intel updater available for download), it doesn't follow OS X screen saver rules. To change the settings you have to launch a separate application rather than go through the OPTIONS button in the screen saver preferences. One interesting feature is the ability to follow the motion of a single fish; unfortunately I was unable to figure out how to STOP following the motion of a single fish. The only way I could get out of it was to change the tank configuration. Performance is mediocre at best; while I can easily get a dozen fish comfortably and smoothly swimming around with SereneScreen's Marine Aquarium (which has more complex structures and better detail) on my dual 2GHz G5 (with 4GB RAM and a 512MB video card), after six or seven fish I start to see jumping frames in AquaZone. Additionally, the fish don't always behave realistically; tetras, for example, school almost all the time, while in AquaZone they often behave like pretty much any fish, randomly swimming wherever it can go. Another gripe: The program limits your ability to customize the tank. While I understand the physiological requirement to not mix fresh and saltwater (or shallow and deep water) fish, this isn't a physical world. If I want my coelacanth to swim next to my neon tetra, or if I want my blacktip shark to have at a school of dwarf gourami, the program shouldn't stop me -- yet it does.

I know that's a lot of negative so here's some positive: There are lots of fish and tank options, including some designed for wide-screen machines which are pretty interesting. The assortment of fish is very interesting, ranging from common freshwater favorites (goldfish, etc) to sea turtles, sharks and an assortment of jellyfish. (MISSING: Starfish, shrimps, crabs, and other crustaceans.) I also like the ability to add more fish and aquarium enhancements (toys, etc) to the show, although I think it's kind of greedy that you have to pay for them. If the quality of the fish/animation was better I would be more inclined to buy more, but not at this level.

Delightful and realistic Virtual Aquarium 12 Jan. 2006
By J. Michael Birch - Published on Amazon.com
I received this as a gift and I am very impressed with the quality compared to other PC screen-saver aquariums I have seen. You may also see it used as a demo in stores that sell PCs. The fish are highly realistic in the way they move as well as the 3D graphics. Watching fish move in and out of the gently waving tentacles of a sea anemone is almost as fascinating as the real thing. There is also a FishCam mode from a fish POV. You can select different aquariums and then add one or more fish from a selection of about 40. The choice of aquarium effects the choice of fish. Additional fish can be purchased online.

If you have an older PC this program may not work well for you. The requirements include "3D graphics acceleration and support for DirectX 8.1". Also, I have not found a way to display the aquarium across multiple monitors. It would be great to see fish swim from one monitor over to the other.

Great Time Waster 27 Jun. 2006
By D. Greenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Every once in a while a product comes along that does one thing, and does it really well. The only question is "do you need it" With modern LCD screens and sleep/energy save modes, screen savers are virtually unnecessary. That's really the point of Aquazone, it has no practical value, but it is very cool.

Before we got our little dog Tova, we had a fish tank for a number of years. I do miss some of the relaxing aspects of watching fish swim around and interact. Fish are generally low maintance and considered by many a key stress reducer. I think of this screen saver program as a virtual tamagotchi or a aquatic version of the Sims. You can do everything you would do with a normal fish tank: add and remove fish, feed them, tap on the glass (or the keyboard in this case). Even better, you can mix fresh water and salt water, no worries about two male Betas in the same tank Fortunately you don't have to clean the tank and you don't get algae. If you want fish not included in the tank, you can buy some more online

If you ( or someone you know) enjoys fish and want to buy something fun and rather frivolous, this is a great program. If you aren't into fish, probably not worth buying

Pros: Does exactly what is says, creates a virtual fish tank

Cons: Probably a productivity waster at the office, gotta love fish to enjoy the program.

THE FISH ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 July 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
I like this screensaver,because you think the fish are really real and you can feed them and watch them and you tap on the glass your fish will sometimes react. I'm going to keep it forever and ever.The 2 expansion packs to complete my screensaver of fish is the Arowana pack and the funstuff pack. Thank you for reading this cool review and my name is Kris.I really like aquazone!
A Whale of a Waste of Money 10 Jun. 2007
By MAK - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the biggest rip offs of a software program I have ever purchased. I've only given it one star because I don't have the option of NO stars.

I bought this for my son's Intel Mac, only problem is it doesn't work on a Intel Mac. Too bad it doesn't say that anywhere on the box or in the online advertising. I installed it on my G5 and cannot believe how slow it works and of what poor quality the fish are. They don't even look close to realistic. If you want more realistic looking fish, get Serene Screne's Marine Aquarium. Far superior to this poor excuse of a screensaver!
