What Edgar is saying is that most of the programs I listed can't do Windowed mode.
Yes, you are running it in Windowed mode on a monitor other than the primary. On most systems, the program slows to a crawl when even a portion of the window touches the non-primary monitor.

So, if you want to view the Aquarium on one monitor while working on the other, these are your choices:

1. Live with the slow FPS.
2. Get a faster card.
3. If the monitor running the Aquarium is using 32-bit, try 16-bit.
4. Run the Aquarium window on the Primary monitor, and your other programs on the Secondary.
5. (Added) Users report that Windows 7 fixes this problem. See below.
