Fish! puts a variety of undersea life on your desktop, and also offers a screen saver mode.

 

This is the demo version, which does not allow you to save changes to the fish. Does anyone have the registered version to upload?

I'm so thrilled to finally have a copy of this! I've heard so much about it over the years, but I've never even been able to get my hands on a demo version.

The awesome part about this program, for those who don't know, is that it will displays the fish ON your desktop as you are actually working, behind the windows and icons. It isn't just a screen saver, in fact the screen saver is sort of secondary to the desktop animation, which was ground-breaking at the time.

THIS SEEMS TO WORK BEST IN System 6!
When tested in 7.6.1 (with only base extensions enabled), it locks up just after the start-up screen disappears and the desktop is about to be displayed.
I can't say about earlier versions of System 7 as I haven't tested it, but due to the age of the program, and the fact that it has the desktop animation feature (demanding more compatibility from the OS than is required simply to display a screen saver), I would think it unlikely. But please do post here if you have different results or find a workaround.
