Power BI Custom Visuals Class (Module 02 – Enlighten Aquarium)

Power BI Module 02

In this module you will learn how to use the Enlighten Aquarium Power BI Custom Visual.  While it might not be the most practical visualization it does provide a fun way to show categorical data and can have multiple series shown as well.

Module 02 – Enlighten Aquarium


Key Takeaways

  • The Fish field setting is where you will place the categorical data you would like to visualize. Each unique value here creates a new fish in the aquarium
  • The Fish Size setting allows you to place one or more metrics that you would like to analyze on each fish.



When you place more than one metric in the Fish Size property it creates a second series of fish on the aquarium that have a different shape

  • Each custom visual has additional formatting that can be found by selecting the Format paintbrush.


The Enlighten Aquarium has minimal format settings that can be adjusted.
