Don’t want the hassle and expense of a real aquarium in your home? This page will show you how to set a fish tank screensaver on your TV with real aquatic life.
There is currently no such thing as video screensavers for TV, if you are thinking along the lines of a traditional computer screensaver. Instead you need to set a video to loop (repeat) manually. Products like the Apple TV have screensavers which are just collections of images, or timelapses. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy aquarium video backgrounds on your HD TV or SMART TV.
Firstly you will need an aquarium video. We have a wide selection of 4K and HD aquarium videos on this website. Our video files come in the universal MP4 format. Just like MP3 is the standard for music files, MP4 is the most popular format for videos. Each video is a digital download, fast and secure. Our best 4K aquarium videos download bundle is the current best option as it gives you the 10 best Ultra HD aquariums with over 50% off.

Next, you will need a media player. This can be one built into your SMART TV, or older TVs may require an external media player box. You can get the videos on your TV with software like the free Kodi media center, where content is streamed from your computer through your home WiFi network. Alternatively, just add the video to a USB stick or SD card and plug that into your TV.
When I want to set an aquarium video on my TV screen I press play on iTunes and the repeat button. Using iTunes you will need to create a playlist or set the video as a music video to allow it to loop. It should be simpler using other software. iTunes can be controlled on your computer or I often use my iPad or iPhone using the Remote app.
Once you have figured it out for your hardware and software it is a quick and easy task. You will soon have an attractive aquarium on your TV screen. It is so much easier than buying a real fish tank. Plus, you can alternate between vastly different aquariums. If the whole media player and media streamer thing is above your head just let us know and we will help guide you.
Aquarium videos are great for relaxation
Ever noticed a fish tank in your dentist’s waiting room? They are very common in dentists because they have a calming effect. The problem with the real thing is that you either need to put a lot of effort into cleaning them or fork out big bucks on a quality filtration system. Now that most of us have 4K UHD televisions, we can enjoy clear, crisp picture quality which is not far from being as good as the real thing.
