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 1: if you are on Windows 8 or 10 and receive an error about Flash while installing, close the installer, download and run this file, then restart the installation process.
Known issue 2: If you don't allow your system to be tested to automatically detect the optimal settings for the screensaver during installation, you may get a "Runtime Error" when the screensaver attempts to run. You will need to click the "Test my system for optimal settings" button under the "Video" tab of the screensaver's settings panel to resolve this.
Known issue 3: Support for Adobe Flash Player has been removed from Windows. This screensaver requires Flash only for the settings panel. The screensaver itself still works.

It will no install.
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.
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).
Got a runtime error and I can't even uninstall the screensaver; it says "Could not find INSTALL.LOG file."
Good, but it seems to support only one monitor (and only the main one).
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
Exactly what I wanted, very pretty and easy to use, safe too. Thank you very much
if froze my computer and said "did not install is not responding"
I absolutely think this is amazing, such a nostalgic screensaver.
It is so cool.
Great screensaver. Only the resolution is low.
very well done.
Running on Windows 10! cool yeah, thank you!
Nature is good
I thnk it is great
It wont uninstall. Says it cant find the uninstall.log file
I love it! My son in law installed it last nite but put too many fish in and I would like to remove some ~ I know there is a place to choose but can't find it. Thanks
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.
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.
LOADS of error messages throughout, even though 'fix' downloaded. Was never able to get it to work/start. :O(
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.
I love it, I don't have any pets, so these are the next best thing. XXXX
This has really old resolution and desperately needs an update. until then i dont recommend it.
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
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.
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.

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.
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!
after i installed there is an error runtime and dont allow the aquarium to work
I keep getting a pop up box idicating a runtime error after I installed Living Marine Aquarium 2. How do I remove this error?
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.
It's very soothing to the body just watching it. I recommend this to those with PTSD and other mentally ill.
i like skren sevr
It's simply wonderful. However i don't know ow to install it.
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.
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.
The best of the free aquaria, and one of the best at any price.
On most antivirus programs, its some kind of virus. I'm using avast. I looked into the antivirus tab and on avast my computer is safe. AVAST ROKS! Anyway, this screensaver is beautiful and calm. 5/5 Best!
my cats love it so I'm happy with it to
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.
I Really love the screensavers. Now I found out that windows 10 has them.
nice screen sever cool
i like it a lot
beautiful deep water
