Interactive tank designer

I was never a big fan of drawing out the top view of the tank for layout purposes. It never gave me a view of how the tank would turn out...

So I'm making this...

I've only started but it'll give you a taste of the application.. Not sure if I have too much time for it but I'll finish it eventually.

enjoy.

oh! and I need good quality pictures of the whole plant if you would like to contribute to this project.

Excellent idea! Could you make it that we could mix two substrates, like half sand and half Amazonia(?).

This is great. Are you planning to add an option to be able to resize rocks/wood etc?

TOO COOL!!!!! One more thing for the wish list IF it's possible ~ to be able to put some plants on top of things, like anubias on top of the driftwood. Currently we can put them in front of the wood, but if we want to "attach" it to the top of the wood it doesn't work. All the other things (more type of plants, resizing plants, etc.) would be great.

Man, this is just awesome!!

How many watts do I need to make my swimming pool a high light tank?

Thanks,
Yes, scaling is in the works... but I'll not add rotate because it'll be weird..
And no on put objects on top of objects like an anubias on driftwood.. It would take too much work to program and define the actual 3 dimensional dimensions of an object.

mister, it's time to get PAID

show this to a major fish/plant reseller
fish tank gravel/ornament manufacturer,
or major fish/plant hobby magazine,
(who can provide graphic elements)
boarder it with some banner ads that
update on every refresh, and watch
the pennies pour in!
