Like many of us, I need a few pleasant distractions during the course of the day. Here’s one that is fun, entertaining, inexpensive and comes with the added benefit of being totally therapeutic. Oh, and it has to do with fish.
Is That A Fish In Your Pocket?
Allow me to quote the great Mae West from the movie She Done Him Wrong in 1933, “Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?” West, like me, was tall, blond, curvy, and not afraid of a little innuendo (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
What I have is what Mae West did not have. An aquarium in my pocket. Actually, it’s my iPhone that has the aquarium.
I once was the owner of many tropical fish, but years of being on the road and working late hours made appropriate fish management to difficult for me and the fish.
Colorful Aquarium gives iPhone and iPad users the best of both worlds. An aquarium in your phone.
It’s just like taking your aquarium wherever you go. Feed the digital fish with digital food. Clean the moss. Why? Because it grows over time. Replace the sand in the aquarium with sand of a different color.
Your mobile fish tank contains a variety of exotic fish, including the Longhorn Cowfish. There’s options for a variety of coral and colors. You can even control the number of bubbles floating up on screen.
Add new fish to the aquarium via drag and drop. If you add the same fish multiple times, the fish are different in size. Add and move props inside the aquarium and change the shape or size.
Colorful Aquarium comes with a tools menu for feeding, settings, cleaning, sand, and more.
What’s therapeutic about having an aquarium in your pocket?
It’s actually the best of all worlds. Your digital fish become like a family pet which needs care and attention.
Yet, you won’t feel guilty because you’re at work or on a date and can’t be at home with Fluffy Yellowtail because the aquarium is in your pocket.
Feeding the fish in your iPhone or iPad helps to reduce stress (it’s not likely that digital fish die the same horrifying death or have the same variety of illnesses found in real fish) and calm tattered nerves.
So, if anyone ever asks you, ‘Is that a pistol in your pocket?‘ You can say, ‘No, it’s my aquarium.’
