Marine Aquarium 3.2.1 runs nicely on MacOS 10.7.5

Nice when it works. Mountain Lion breaks this. Doubt there will be an update from this developer.

Go to their site - http://www.serenescreen.com/product/maquarium3x/ They have version 3.2 on there which works perfectly in Mountain Lion, it's a free update as well.

Thanks Hilbo60 for the link...the link works, but it also reminded me to try the purchase-only link, and the gorgeous Marine Aquarium is now working great on my Mountain Lion machine! Much appreciated.

The Marine Aquarium APP seems to work with Mountain Lion, but the screensaver does not.

Belay my last. 3.2 screensaver does work.

Current version seems to be 3.2 (on their website). I have 3.0.2, which runs fine on Lion.

Does anyone know what the newer version offers for a $10 upgrade price?

Ooops, it looks like the 3.2 version is for Windows only, which was not obvious until one digs around a bit.

They could really use help on their circa 1998 website design.

Very nice screensaver. But hey, 20 bucks for a screensaver??? Please...
For those who will ask: I got this one in a bundle... looks more like a freebie, to me.

Has anyone tried this under OS 10.7? Does it work?

It works on 10.7 absolutely fine. I have been using it non-stop since 10.5. Currently on 10.7.2 and not a single issue.

As for frequency of updates, the two Jims that make this, as talented as they are, either work very very slowly, or don't have the time to dedicate to this. If you post on the forums, it often takes weeks to get a reply. Months go by without any posts at all. Civilisations rise and fall, mountains are eroded by the wind between updates. It really is geological time, and that's not much of an exaggeration. Shame.

Ok, so the image is gorgeous and it the software is stable. I have owned almost every version of this screen saver since it was released. Call me nuts, but the company logo, which apparently cannot be disabled, bugs the sh*t out of me! I thought the reason we pay for software is to avoid the annoying advertising.

You can uncheck the company logo after adding another. I created a transparent png file with GraphicConverter, added to the list, unchecked the Serene Screen logo, set the default clock to "Logo", unchecked "Cycle clocks", and I get the crystal with no distractions.

Still not fully compatible with mac OS X (V° 10.6.5) : the screen saver module works normally, but not the application.
And previous version (version 2) was nicer : more realistic !!!

Apparently, this version doesn't work with 10.6.3. Have emailed the developer twice, and have not received any reply. An update is in order, as is much better customer support.

Yes I am another still waiting for an upgrade option plus emailed the developers over a month ago and am still awaiting anything back. All very disappointing for what is essentially a nice product.
