Customer Reviews

Very relaxing to watch in the evening.
Vicki
I pulled it up and it is noisy and the water flow is so strong that the fish are forced unnaturally across the screen.
V. Simmons
It is like having an aquarium without the mess.

I initially purchased "Saltwater Reef: An Aquarium for Your Television" for my wife, who is a biology teacher, thinking she might find it of value in her classroom. She did - but I quickly found it perfectly suited to my purposes, as well. First, my wife: Not only was she smitten with the color, the quality, the crispness and the top-notch production values, but she also was blown away by the incredible variety of saltwater life that populated this intriguing production. She and her students have watched it over and over, and have used it for both educational and recreational purposes - precisely as you would a real aquarium!

As for me: Once I saw it, I had to have one for myself. I use it in my office as a fascinating yet calming visual that not only helps me get through the day, but stimulates my creativity and serves as a terrific conversation starter. The price - $1.99 for a 7-day rental or $3.99 for purchase - is highly reasonable and may be even underpriced. You certainly get more than your money's worth, which is rare in ANY product these days. "Saltwater Reef: An Aquarium for Your Television" is the perfect marriage of quality and affordability.

I have to admit my presumptions were so very low before I watched this film. C'mon. It's a bunch of fish in a man-made environment meant to simulate the ocean. If you've seen an aquarium at all, ever, this is what it's like. Big deal.

Peel away the layers, and suddenly you are involved in a complicated plot with various subplots. You understand it, but it doesn't make sense. At all. The pain. The beauty. Simple, yet such complex life forms. The need for constant motion. The boredom, the repetition of everyday life - how precious it all is, when it changes, and not always for the better. New characters are constantly introduced, and disappear almost as quickly, only to dart in again when you least expect it (there are no small parts). And the lack of dialogue is brilliant, leaving the viewer to draw the obvious conclusion.

Sometimes the colors are striking, and sometimes they're jarring. We cannot see the water, but we know it's there. There's a lot to see, actually, but sometimes I wondered if I was really seeing everything. (I've seen better CGI, but remember this is an indie film, with a small budget, and they did what they could with what they could afford.) Is this how the ocean looks, or are we meant to think that this is how the ocean really looks? Would such fishes coexist in this same fashion somewhere in the wild, or only in this limited sphere, four finite glass walls with an artificial glow?

The clown fish cannot get away from what it is, even when it is approached by other fish. It cannot get around its own prejudices regarding interspecies dating, and its contrived, almost constant references to a certain Pixar movie. The starfish doesn't move. Ever. Why? Why can't the starfish move? Is it paralysis, or ennui?

I played this video in the background while I was doing some work. I felt like the aquatic sounds were very soothing, but not distracting. It's a fun video to keep on in the background.

I have always been fascinated with the ocean and marine life. When I stumbled upon this video, I found it amazing and visually stunning. I couldn't take my eyes away from the television screen. I was blown away by the clarity, quality, and the production value of the video. I loved how the camera captured the aquatic life surrounding the busy reef. The color just popped on the screen.

This video comes highly recommended if you want to enjoy watching something beautiful and relaxing.

This is an awesome movie. A lot of really interesting, complex characters and a plot that just won't quit. Don't get too comfortable though, because just as soon as you start to relax the action kickstarts again. Like that dude that likes to scratch himself on top of the corral. Oh, what a little stinker he is. My only complaint is the cliffhanger of an ending. I wish things could have been tied up a little better. Like whatever happened to the boyfriend who had a meth problem in the first half of the movie. We never find out if he kicked the habit.

This video should have bee rated R17 for explicit content. These fish are totally nude! They remain that way thru the whole film. The film maker did not even have the decency to put pants on these smut peddling smelt! Hard to believe that this is recommended for families.

This is very nice to just blank your brain for a while. Makes a good screen saver. Worth the money.

The picture quality is very poor. It looks like there's not enough pixels. And maybe a few more variety of fish.
