Anybody have a Macquarium?

Anybody have a Macquarium set up, with fish in it? I was thinking it might be fun to set up a webcam.

Was that an After Dark module or a separate screen saver?

Three versions

I think it was both an After Dark and regular screen saver.   The third option Tom is asking about came about when people took old machines, especially the early 9" compact Macs, gutted the case and inserted a real aquarium with real water and real fish  to replace the CRT in the case. Mine was made from a Mac Classic until my 9 year old son had a little accident with a baseball in the family room.  My wife never really liked the gawdy project anyway, so mine just disappeared. The kid got an icecream cone rather than a scolding and I got to clean up the mess.

It's a little more buried than I realized. I should make a front page graphic for that.


I'm imagining a low-res update-every-minute-or-two QuickCam image in the sidebar. I don't want fish though. Anybody?
