Take a look at the xscreensaver package.

It should work just fine with GNOME, if I remember right it has a "fish tank" type screensaver among the very many it offers.

I dont think your going to find anything like what your looking for.Best screen savers Ive seen in linux are opengl type..But theres nothing like some of the aquarium screeen savers your talking about.The Really Slick Screensavers package has the best eye candy screensavers..also try electric sheep

I spent 2 days in searching windows like screen savers-no success, thanks for suggestions, but it is not what i'm looking for, too pity, but Linux hasn't alternatives.

Its not that It cant be done..just no one has made one yet..Guess a realistic aquarium screens saver isn't high on the "must have" list..Be cool to have one though.
