As I can't download that link I take it this is a version of the first Serenescreen Saver by Jim Sachs, "The Aquarium"?



If so the author plans another two, the next being a Butterfly garden.

I have the full 7 fish version, but get 380fps @ 1024x768 with three fish for what it's worth.

It is really just a screen saver, but is nice desktop eye candy. Can't see it being silly however, as it beats the heart ache of trying to own real Tropical Marine fish I can tell you.
