    1. Hi, What version of the app do you have? Try to set the wallpaper from device system settings: Hold down your finger in any part of the home screen without icons, select the option “set wallpaper”, “Live Wallpapers”, "_The real aquarium HD_", “Set Wallpaper”.

  2. It would be really cool if the next fish that you add would be a blowfish and even better if you could actually make it blow up larger.

  3. Some new update either on your app or my phone has stopped your application from rotating to landscape view and thus is stuck on portrait view.

    1. Hi! it can't be an update because we have not released updates on the last 2 months. Try to set the wallpaper again. If it doesen't work, try to clear the app data: On device settings - Apps - The Real Aquarium HD - Storage - Clear Data. Then set the wallpaper again. Best Regards, The Memento Apps Team.

  4. how to put it on your homescreen and lockscreen??? Further i love it

    1. If you can't set the live wallpaper as home and lock screen, you may set it using this app: "Set LockScreen LWP" ( Find it on the top right menu of the app or get it on Goolge Play.
      Many devices does not allow set live wallpapers on lock screen, even with this app.
