Searched for 2 days for this!! Finally found it at 4am last night. Now if they would just come out with something we could download.

Pick out your rock, plants, and driftwood and place them in the tank in any configuration you want. This allows you to see what your aquascape is likely going to look like in your own tank. Been messing around with it for my tank and am, hopefully, going to the fish store today to get the things for my 55g.

5 minutes in, and I am officially addicted. It's nice since I am still planning out my 55, and don't have any idea what my second piece of driftwood will be that I can get more ideas and know what to look for.
I got hooked on playing with it as well. I was still hoping to find something a little better, but don't seem like there is much out there yet. Maybe one day you will be able to pick from more plants, wood, and rocks while layering them over a picture of your own tank. That would be sweet.

There's also a PC version of Photoshop called Gimp available that's a free download that you can post your actual tank into. It obviously doesn't come with plant/rock pics but is just like Photoshop otherwise, at least close enough for the casual user like myself.

I started a thread on this a month ago. Some responses have some programs, but to my expeirence they were limited.

Working in the technology world, specifically on "Cloud Computing", I am shocked a big name vendor has not stepped up here.
Thanks for that, mistergreen had a really nice program he made. You can find it here. Seems to be the best one I've seen so far.
