If colors are the problem, you might try limiting the amount of colors
that xfishtank sucks up.  You can do a 

	$ xfishtank -C 4 &

or maybe a
	$ xfishtank -C 16 &

or add it to your .xinitrc file if you really like the fish.  There
are also a number of tricks to get the fish to swim on gifs or other
background pictures.  You can even scan your child's picture in and 
convert it to fish format.  The directions are in the source somewhere.

Actually, I think I'll add this to me .xinitrc now.  I've been staring
at a serious grey gif root image for too long.
