One warning for all Mac users: on the version I have, you have to switch to 256 colors to play. That makes it very difficult to leave the aquarium running while doing other things. The graphics are okay, not as crisp or as stunning as I had hoped. And there is no screen saver mode, which really would be the ultimate for this game. All in all, you have to plan to play it (reset your screen) and then when you get in it, there's really nothing to do but stare at the screen, maybe feed the fish, and then it's boring. I love aquariums and even I wasn't captivated by this game. If you have an old, unused Mac sitting around, you might consider just running this game on it 24/7. That might work...
