Aquascaping Software?

Does anyone know of software available that will allow you to "design" your fishtank similar to what is available for Landscaping/interior design?

It would be awesome to set dimensions/type of tank, and have a database of icons and images to add to the tank to get a visual of what might be in one's head...

I agree that it would be pretty cool to have a software program for designing scapes, but agree on the pencil and paper for now. Color pencils/pens/etc. seem a lot less troublesome than software for some reason....at least in my head and I'm a computer science major...but that's probably because I'm lazy.

Hey man - thanks and great job on the tool. Did it help? Absolutely. I saved a tank that is "similar" to the layout, a few things missing to get it excact but I sure cant fault you. Overall what you developed is right on point with what I was looking for.

is there anything I can do to assist you in furthering the capbilities of this program?

yeah, there are bug here and there. I haven't had the time to fix things.
I just worked on a recent project the lets you take a screen capture of what your designed. That could be a neat addition but I'd have to upgrade the code to AS 3.0 which could take a lot of work.
