Occasionally a fish will move in a slightly unreal way or the mouse can move a bit jerkily while it is on but that's a minor problem. It's the future of digital screen effects and I find it so relaxing to sit, with the programme on - either in desktop or background mode - whilst reading or just relaxing - it's so therapeutic. All I need now, is a means of actually smelling the ocean for the ultimate experience. When technology permits a whole wall screen in every house, themes like this will really come into their own........

Once loaded, this is so relaxing, sometimes i just sit and watch it and listen to the sound of the ocean. Had a bit of a problem with loading the program, (but it was just a case of changing what looked like the letter O, for the number zero)
The choice of three backgrounds is rather limited but are high quality. It comes with some rather nice sound effects and the ability to make and use your own playlist of music is very good, but can sometimes over power the sound effects of the fish swimming. The three different mode give a nice choice for how you want to view your fish. Personally I think the running the standalone mode or screensaver mode are the only mode that are worth bothering with as the active desktop mode can make it difficult to see, particularly if you have lots of icons on your desktop. There are loads of different types of fish to choose from and you can select and edit the fish that appear on the screen.
The autorun menu doesn't appear properly and if you can persuade the buttons to appear they don't work, this does tend to create problems for people who don't know much about installing. Therefore you need to run the installer directly from the cd. Also the installer needs to be in Microsoft Windows 2000 Compatibility Mode when trying to install this software on Microsoft Windows XP. This again could be difficult for a inexperienced user. However I have the level of knowledge needed to install this software and when I got it running I was very impressed with it.
The software could be improved by more backgrounds and more fish types, but this said it isn't a major want and shouldn't put you off buying the software. Also I would like to be able to interact with the fish a little more, as the only features it has are "Tickle Fish, Feed Fish, Shark Attack".
