I was hoping this DVD would be a lot more enjoyable than it is. I don't know why, but it just doesn't impress me. The picture quality is good, but it's a DVD so it should be. Other than that there's not much of interest. Maybe the fish were having an off day when they were filmed? I found the music tracks ("Meditation" and "Relaxation") rather annoying. The sound effects tracks are ok, but the "Bubbles" soundtrack doesn't sound like a fish tank to me...it's too busy and too noisy. The setup that I like the most (or dislike the least) is the Classic tank with the Bubbles soundtrack. That seems to be the closest to having a real tank in your living room. If you are really serious about getting into the world of fish, then get a real tank. If you really want to learn about fish then buy a book. If you just want a mildly entertaining maintenance free fish tank in your living room then get this DVD.

The fish are pretty and active, the photography is good, and the colors are vibrant. But the 40-minute wide shot of the full tank is not very satisfying. The edited close-up shots of the individual fish swimming by are much more pleasing, but this segment is only 8 minutes long. You can select to repeat either segment endlessly, but only 8-minutes makes the "meditation" or "relaxation" audio choices rather silly. So I am stuck with using a repeated 8 minutes of pleasent sounding ocean waves breaking on shore (the "aquarium bubbles" choice is not pleasing either). Nice, but this could be much better for little extra production cost, it would seem.
