There’s just something so calming about watching fish swim. Perhaps it’s the way they seem to be in no real hurry. Regardless, it cannot be denied that watching fish swim around in an aquarium is just so relaxing. Managing a real aquarium, however, can take a lot of work and money, so why not get an aquarium on your Android device? Live wallpapers are snazzy inventions, allowing you to interact with your screen in more ways than the usual navigation. Unfortunately, live wallpapers can also suck your device’s battery dry.
If you’re willing to sacrifice your Android device’s battery for the peace that fish swimming around on your screen can give you, then we’ve put together some of the best aquarium and fish live wallpapers available on the Google Play Store.
To kick off this list of fish and aquarium live wallpapers, take a peek at what goes on deep underwater. Aquarium Live Wallpaper by Kittehface Software lets you have a beautiful tropical fish tank as your live wallpaper.
Enjoy beautiful 3D fish of every color imaginable and a variety of underwater plants as they decorate your home screen. You can get the fishes’ attention by tapping on your screen and double tapping to feed them. If you’re not satisfied with a coral reef as your fishes’ backdrop, then switch it up with a ship wreck, forgotten by people and now home to an assortment of sea creatures.
The app lets you toggle the bubbler and the overhead light to achieve a mood that you want. The wallpaper takes full advantage of OpenGL and supports both homescreen switching and landscape and portrait modes.
You can download Aquarium Live Wallpaper by Kitteface Software from the Google Play Store for free. If you want even more settings, you can purchase Aquarium Donation to be able to select up to a dozen fish, customize plants, and change tank toys.

Take note, however, that the live wallpaper does not self-rotate from portrait to landscape mode. Users will have to go into the settings to manually change it. Other users have complained that the background selection is also rather lacking. These two snags, however, are not dealbreakers and the huge selection of fish definitely makes up for them.
