Frequently Asked Questions

If you are experiencing a technical problem, please visit the troubleshooting guide.
If have already purchased and have a problem, please visit the order issues page.

Will the trial install some kind of adware or spyware on my computer?
Definitely not. Dream Aquariumare in the aquarium screensaver business and nothing more. Those who enjoy the screensaver and want it to develop further will choose to support it.

Are there more tanks and fish available for Dream Aquarium?
There are 23 species in the full version. There are currently 2 main tanks. It is Dream Aquarium's plan to add additional tanks and species.

Can one license be used on more than one computer?
Dream Aquarium are fine with using a single license on several of your own machines. A serial number belongs to a person, not a machine.

When more fish and tanks come out, will I have to purchase them separately?
The current plan is to release new fish and at least one more double-wide tank for free. In the future, additional tanks may be sold separately.

What's the policy regarding updates & upgrades?
There is no limit on the number of updates you can do. Your license will be good throughout the 1.x series of Dream Aquarium releases, so there's no disadvantage to purchasing sooner rather than later. Additional fish will appear in the updates.

Can Dream Aquarium be used as an active desktop?
Not currently, but Dream Aquarium's intention is to eventually make Dream Aquarium into an active desktop, which means the aquarium will be running at all times on your desktop, behind your windows and icons. Dream Aquarium do not make any guarantees this will happen, just that it is their intention.

Is the fish motion and behavior complete?
Far from it. Behavior development won't stop until the fish look and act exactly like real fish. You can already see how the fish interact with their environment much more than any other virtual aquarium. Dream Aquarium want the virtual fish to enjoy and explore their world, not just swim blankly from one side of the tank to the other.

Is there a Macintosh version available?
Yes, a Macintosh for OS version 10.6 or higher is available for download.

Are there plans for a marine aquarium?
Yes, however since there is already a good virtual marine aquarium on the market, Dream Aquarium are focusing on freshwater initially.

Does the aquarium work in dual-monitor mode?
Yes, Dream Aquarium will display an aquarium on each monitor, and the fish and settings can be changed individually for each monitor. In the future Dream Aquarium will have an extra-wide aquarium which extends across both monitors.

Is there a discussion forum for Dream Aquarium?
Yes, if you'd like to give feedback, talk to other users or ask Dream Aquarium questions, they encourage you to visit their forum.
