    I still get a small giggle from feeding the fish on my aquarium live wallpaper.

    I agree, they are pretty darn neat and I think we'll see even better ones in the near future.

    I'll have to give that one a try. The main three I use is red eye scanner, flying android, and the star field.

    At first I stayed away from live wallpapers to save battery, but now I've been using the aquarium for about 10 days, and it's only 3% of the usage. Seems worth it to me. Thats way down in the noise-level compared to the power consumption due to my office being in a bad reception spot.

    Using the Super Mario one myself - he just got stuck on my screen too - but the easy fix is to just go in to the wallpaper configure and tell it to skip the level - it starts a new level and no more stuck mario!

    I haven't noticed any adverse battery effects from running it either

    EDIT: The seeds of life one just looks like a bunch of sperm swimming around on your screen?

    don't you live wallpaper since it lags the phone. Trying scrolling through your apps and watch how it lags compared to a static wallpaper.

    I don't think the live wallpaper can drain the battery, or slow the phone, except when it's actually being displayed. If you're in another app, it's going to be inactive in the background like any other app not being used.

    Even using the Mario wallpaper, which must be the most cpu intensive one there is, I don't see a slowdown when scrolling through my apps under the settings menu, or opening or switching between apps.

    Edit: Using the System Panel app, and looking at real-time cpu usage, the Mario wallpaper appears to use zero cpu when it's not actually being displayed. If it's not using cpu, it can't slow any other activity.

    I tried both ways and I don't see any battery loss, just coolness from the wallpaper.

    Anipet aquarium is very cool but slows down my phone a bit. I use aquarium live donation version sometimes and i wish they had freshwater fish like discus, cardinal tetras, and cories.
