Computer Aquascape Design

Anyone know of an app or program you can use to design / plan aquascaping ? I'm thinking of something where you point and click for rock, plant, etc. Kind of a computerized sketch.

I've looked for something along these lines in the past, but was never able to find anything, so ended up drawing out the sketches by hand. In the case of driftwood, it kind of has to be freehand, anyway, but it sure would be nice to be able to just pop a specific type of plant into a scene and move it around until it looked right! If you ever find one, please let me know!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

You're welcome. I can't go on it because I'm afraid I'll start redesigning everything and don't really have time for it :) Good luck!

Neat! Just what I need, another way to waste time, lol.

Edit: OMG I'm sucked in already. This should be a sticky somewhere.

Another edit. When you move the cursor around the top of the page, the fish follow it.
Love it.

While my wife would beg to differ, I think this is a wonderful waste, er use, of time. There are a lot worse.

It beats the heck out of getting into a 30" tank to my shoulders and moving stuff around, lol.
