Desktop Aquarium

One of my all-time favorite desktop aquarium screen toys has been updated again. “Aquazone Seven Seas Deluxe” – you’ve probably used earlier versions of it on your own desktop, as it works in both Windows and OS X. This virtul aquarium now has 40 different species of photo-realistic fresh and saltwater fish, turtles, sharks, and jellyfish. Plus, you can now “tap on the glass” and “sprinkle in fish food” – making an already-fun desktop aquarium even more fun (and less messy than the real thing). It’s even better for me now, as I have a widescreen monitor to the right of my primary screen – connected to another machine, which now runs the aquarium in the foreground. I’ve got it set to follow a shark around the screen right now – but can change it to a tank full of clown fish in an instant. What’s more, they’re currently running a special $5 discount if you use the code ‘NewYear2006’ in the order form. This is the only way I could ever own fish – digital fish in a virtual fish tank.

  2. Looks nice, but the $5 discount link didn’t work for me, plus they want $6.99 for the “privilege” of downloading the app again if I need to reinstall it (within two years). That, and there’s no demo to download and try out.

    No, thanks. I prefer to buy software that gives me access to install whenever I want to, without charging me extra. And they expect me to fork out for the app, without ever trying it out? How 1999… 🙂

    But I’m going to miss the nice pretty fish on my new iMac. 😉

  3. Hmm . . . looks to have the same retail of $24.99. The additional $5 off is nice, but I don’t see the other $5. Maybe I have to know the secret Des Moines Homeboy handshake.
