Earlier this year I saved my pennies and bought a 50" plasma screen. It's great for home cinema but when I'm entertaining guests and not watching the screen, it's a large black hole on the wall of my living room, until now that is.
This DVD is the perfect solution. Instead of being faced with a boring featureless black void, my guests can now gaze at my fabulous collection of marine fish. The bonus is, I never have to clean the tank or feed the fish! I bought the Coral Tank version but I assume they are all variations on a theme and would perform more or less the same function.
I Take on board what other viewers have said about the size of the fish on a smaller screen, but on the plasma screen, the proportions are perfect and I think, very realistic.
The DVD also has some extra features for your PC including a fishy screen-saver, which gives a slideshow of each of the inhabitants of the tank. It also has printable high-quality photos in PDF format and a copy of Acrobat Viewer if you do not already have it.
I love it and I intend to buy the other versions!

I think the former reviewer missses the point and purpose of this DVD. It is meant to make you feel as if your television is a real fish aquarium. It is really about providing an ambience of having a beautiful fish aquarium in your television set you can watch for hours. For those of us with 43 inch screens, or plasma television, it is a god send. You can enjoy the beauty of having a real life fish aquarium without the expense of caring for one. Watching the various unusual fish and their behavior is very soothing to me and takes me to another world. We are all so caught up in our world and its manmade nature. It is refreshing to see other living creatures who aren't affected by politics.
I couldn't believe that previous reviewer gave this DVD only 3 stars. People expect way too much these days not realizing how special it is to be able to pop in a DVD and watch something like this. It was only 20 years ago we didn't have VHS, now look at what we can enjoy!

I have a two month old daughter, and we heard from a friend that an aquarium really entertained their son. We can't afford the cost and upkeep of a real aquarium, so I found this on Amazon.com and purchased it. I put my daughter in front of the tv to any one of the aquarium types on the cd, and she is mesmerized. A really neat feature is a close-up option of each aquarium, and the fish are displayed larger on the screen. This view really captures my daughter's attention - the bright colored fish, coral, and lights keep her eyes darting, and tones down her fussing - allowing me to get things done around the house. ANYONE WITH BABIES - ORDER THIS NOW! It is such easy entertainment, and I am sure it really helps develop their senses! Great video - very real to life.

The best gift I got this season. I've got a big screen. I put on my fish tank video and play my CD tracks or my cable tv music stations as the audio. The next best thing to having a fish tank: and you don't have to clean it out or feed the fish!
