ANNOUNCEMENT: Marine Aquarium 3 (Download and News)

Marine Aquarium 3.3 is the newest version. Please go here for the announcement and download link.

Download Marine Aquarium 3.3 here:

Is this the final version?

It is hoped that we can expect improvements, new fish, new creatures, etc. for many years to come. There are plans for many improvements, including improved control over the lights, the color of the clock/crystal, updated fish, and additional creatures in the tank.

If you purchase Marine Aquarium 3, you are entitled to download these upgrades and improvements to the Marine Aquarium 3 line. (A creature pack is expected which will have a small upgrade cost).

What kind of system do I need to run Marine Aquarium 3?

Marine Aquarium 3 requires a slightly better graphics card than previous editions of the Aquarium. As it has been 8 years since Marine Aquarium .99K was released, this should really come as no surprise! Marine Aquarium 3 still runs very well on what most people would consider very old graphics cards. MA3 will run on more computers and more versions of Windows than any other competing Aquarium product.

Marine Aquarium for Mac requires OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard.

Marine Aquarium for Windows requires Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows XP (64-bit), Windows Vista, Windows Vista (64-bit), or Windows 7 with at least 512MB of RAM.

Marine Aquarium has been tested on these graphics cards:
