Living Marine Aquarium 2

Version 2.0 of the Living Marine Aquarium screensaver features 18 animated species of fish and other sea creatures, from the Blue Hippo Tang and Percula Clown to a Sea Horse and Anemone Crab. It also includes three different aquariums that the screensaver rotates through. The quality of the graphics can be adjusted via the settings panel, where you can also customize the number of fish per species or select an aquarium of your preference.

Known issue: Support for Adobe Flash Player has been removed from Windows. This screensaver requires Flash only for the settings panel. The screensaver itself still works.

Does not work with Windows 11.
Get same blue screen as in other reviews.

Didn't work, just a blue block shows up with bubbling noises. Nothing else.

Tried to install this on Win 10 (22H2) on a Surface Pro 3 with dual monitors and it gives a "Exception EOIeSysError in module settings.dat at 0005AB2D. Class not registered." error. The screen saver then isn't able to run after finishing the install.

by Sanija on October 22, 2023

Kind of goofy-looking; not realistic. Definitely not the marine life screensaver I was looking for. Does not fill my widescreen monitor (large black bands at the sides), and I don't see any settings to change that.

by Bruce on October 12, 2023

very good

by Alaa on September 26, 2023

Bad, is only a loading screen, does not work and it uninstalled my other screensavers

Beautiful and have sound like you were in the sea. Easy to install and apply.

by Panisara on June 11, 2023

did not work

by adian on May 27, 2023

Awful. Just freezes with no SS, only audio. It does work for a second displaying an ugly credits splash screen, then seems to crash/freeze. Forces taskbar to hide even though this is off in settings. This is on a high end PC with a 3070 video card so it should be able to handle it. I uninstalled this junk asap.

Exception EOIeSysError in module settings.dat. at 0005AB2D. Class not registerd

by Darius on November 13, 2022

My Dad had the Mac OS 9 version running on our G3 Imac (back when screensavers literally were about saving you poor crt monitor from screen burn in), that one had the same fish tank configuration and also cycled between day and night. It's from the era where screen savers also played sound through the speakers, so if that isn't your jam be warned. Considering screen savers are now more a fun distraction, then anything functional. I personally I'm filled with nostalgia hearing the bubble turn away.

by doc brown on October 1, 2022

The settings will nor work on Windows 11. When clicking priview, the screen settings are too small.

by Brandon on July 23, 2022

visually nice but sound annoying with no way to switch it off without using the computer sound button

by mazza on July 15, 2022

by Guru Sevak on July 7, 2022

This doesn't work well if you have two or more monitors hooked up to your computer.

by Stephen Mol on June 16, 2022

Watching these beautiful creatures ,listening to the bubbles offers you a nice feeling of relaxation and calmness .Simply beautiful. Thank you very much.

by Glenda Rozier on March 28, 2022

Living Marine Aquarium 2 screensaver works for me in Windows 11.
While you can no longer change the settings via the screen savers settings panel (because Flash has been discontinued), you can manually edit the "settings.xml" file in the screensaver's installation folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Freeze.com\Living Marine Aquarium 2 Full\"). You will need administrator permissions on your computer, and most likely you cannot directly edit the file in the folder. Rather, copy the file to another location (like your Documents folder) and edit it there. You can use Notepad to edit the file. Rename the original "settings.xml" file to "settings_bak.xml", and copy your edited "settings.xml" file into screensaver's install folder.
Most of the settings which are not a fish can be either 0 (off) or 1 (on). The fish can be set to 0 (none) 1 (one fish) or a higher number for more fish. Some fish can only be 0 or 1. Experiment with the settings and don't worry. You can always start over with a fresh copy of the "settings_bak.xml" file if something gets messed up.

it didnt install the runtime files and wont run on my machine

by philip kruger on March 18, 2022

This is good for a free screensaver in 2022! Windows 10 here.

by Fire Thief on January 30, 2022

Crashes, prompts upgrade to paid version

by 3Ways on January 29, 2022

Nice screensaver. Has anyone seen the Sea Horse or was it excluded?

by Timothy on January 28, 2022

Very nice screensaver. Runs well on Windows 10 Pro at 1920 x 1080 resolution (16:9) despite not having that resolution set into it's initialization files. There is a glitch which my anti-malware (Emsisoft) hits on the installation directory of "..\Freeze.com," telling me it is a PUP. This is not the case as SSPlanet text support informs me.

It will no install.

by Edward Stotts on June 29, 2021

Installers says Flash is required to use the screensaver, even though the Change Log notes say it is not. Wasn't able to install it.

by Jorp on June 15, 2021


by Jeffrey on March 17, 2021

I am not sure yet. I downloaded it but I am not able to install it due to the discontinuation of Flash Player. Do you have any additional information regarding Adobe Flash Player EOL and how I might still be able to try your screen saver?
Any information you can share would be very much appreciated.

Happy New Year!

Screensavers Planet: Please refer to the two known issues listed in the description above for a possible solution to the Flash problem. Unfortunately, without Flash you will not be able to open the screensaver's settings menu, but the screensaver itself does not rely on Flash and continues to work (with the default settings).

by Anna Harrison on December 28, 2020

Got a runtime error and I can't even uninstall the screensaver; it says "Could not find INSTALL.LOG file."

by Didn't work on November 21, 2020

Good, but it seems to support only one monitor (and only the main one).

by Alexander Lishansky on October 17, 2020

Love it

by Dory on September 29, 2020

This beast deserves some kind of medal. Last updated in 2004, I'm running it in 2020 and I scoffed when it said it was going to max out at 1024x768. An ANCIENT resolution. But to my surprise, this screensaver still looks STUNNING! Runs at 144fps on my 144hz monitor with beautiful 32bit color, the creature animations are subtle and immersive, really amazing for a 15+ years old piece of software to run this compatibly, and look as nice as it does. The 4:3 aspect ratio means there are black bars on either side of the screen but if you can forgive that this is much better than I expected. 1 star off for the aspect ratio

by Nicholas Carter on September 14, 2020

Exactly what I wanted, very pretty and easy to use, safe too. Thank you very much

Looks great on my 19" monitor, but on my large 50" wall screen it's tiny with no way to make it fit the screen.

by Enos Milate on March 27, 2019

I have been using this screen saver for a long time. It's nice to see it here for free now. It worked well on my 64 bit desktop computers, But will not install in a 32 bit tablet computer. Both running win 10. It is very pretty, And entertaining.

by Dan Lester on February 2, 2019

LOADS of error messages throughout, even though 'fix' downloaded. Was never able to get it to work/start. :O(

by BeaSotted on January 17, 2019

Make sure you read the "Know issue" in the above website description.
Follow info for repair of "Flash" and mine worked on Windows 10 Pro just fine.
This is a screensaver like, or maybe the same, that I had years ago on Win XP Pro when it first came out.
I read somewhere that there were different adjustments that could be made to the screensaver but I cannot figure out how. Anyone know for sure?
This is cool and kids really like the effects.
(just figured out the "settings panel".
Instructions should have stated "the Windows Settings panel for adjusting screensaver settings".
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks ... if they can read.

by Soll on September 8, 2018

I have had this Screen Saver for many years and I love it so much. It is awesome with the date and time. I have enjoyed it SO much. To anyone who might be interested, I would highly recommend it. I will not put any pictures instead of this Screen Saver. I am hooked on it. It is SO beautiful! Mary August 27. 2018

by Mary on August 27, 2018

Looks good on initial install. I had to apply the Flash fix first and then after install got the Runtime error when trying to preview. Go to screensaver settings and check, I found the resolution, tank were not selected. Select as appropriate and the now preview works.

by Yern on July 12, 2018

It will not install on Windows 7, even after downloading and running the Flash fix

●►At first, all I could give this screen saver was less than one star.

I couldn't use it at all on a brand new custom built computer.

●► Some Hardware specs:

Slot 'DIMM 0' is Empty
Slot 'DIMM 1' is Empty

●►Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate.

Upon installation attempt, this screen saver said it needs Macromedia Flash Player 5 or better. I found and installed that (Version 8). The screen saver still did not work. It still said it needs Macromedia Flash Player 5 or better. Therefore, this screensaver was useless to me. ...Or so I thought.

I was QUITE disappointed.

●►After all of that, I got to thinking that because this computer is brand new with the latest hardware and the problems associated with installing an "old" operating system on new hardware that this/these could have something to do with the problems with getting this screen saver to work. So, I downloaded the "Flash Fix" file mentioned above and ran that.

●► That got this screensaver to work on this OS _AND_ hardware combination. YAAAYYY!!!

●► As I surmised, not only does the OS have something to do with whether or not this screensaver works, but the actual hardware that one is using, as well.

THEREFORE, the webmaster of this page needs to address that in addition to the OS issues cited.

●► All of that said, because of the issues experienced while installing this screen saver and the fact that the lighting never changes from daylight to dark and back with shadowing during play, I can only give this screen saver 3 stars. However, I do like the ability to choose which scenery you want and which fish and how many of them you want in 'your' aquarium.

by btljooz on March 13, 2018

This is beautiful; I want to have my screen saver on all the time and watch the fish. I am running Windows 10 and I had to download the extra file; now it runs perfectly. Thanks!

by debbie on January 26, 2018


by Laurie Marks on January 17, 2018

It looks nice, but why doesn't it display on all screens? My desktop image still displays on my other screens when the aquarium is running on my main screen. My other screensavers don't do that, so not my setting.

by Safdar Agha on February 19, 2017

This doesn't even fill my screen on my laptop at 1024X768.......... there's no slider for the bubble sound level, and it glitched out like a really screwed up video game (watch AngryJoe's review of The Division) with long artifacts and other glitches half the time I previewed it. Wanted a newer looking Aquarium screensaver, but I guess I'll keep using Marine Aquarium Time 2.0.

by Bob on February 14, 2017

Unfortunately, it doesn't fill the screen for a screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 and looks cheesy. I believe I had an earlier version of the screen saver on an older computer and it looked great. The product description should inform the prospective downloader which resolutions are supported

Screensavers Planet: Your older computer may have had a monitor with a 4:3 aspect ratio. Unfortunately, this screensaver is old and was not made to support other aspect ratios. It will only fill the screen on resolutions like 1024x768 and 1280x960. Based on your 3840x2160 screen resolution, you seem to have a 16:9 widescreen display.

by karen on October 26, 2016

This is such a beautiful screensaver, and I really appreciate the sound effects like there is a real aquarium in my room, however it is most unfortunate that I could not adjust the settings to change the graphics for continuously I encounter a "settings.dat has stopped working" error whenever I click on thesettings tab. I like this screensaver a lot but I will have to uninstall it since the current resolution is simply too small for my screen.

by Cruxis on October 24, 2016
