The AquaSketcher


A very useful tool when designing the aquascape in your fish tank.
This lets you make a sketch of your future design!

It's also a lot of fun! Even if you have no plans to create a new aquascape, you can use this program to take a break from looking for military loans online or doing homework to create a beautiful tank full of lush vegetation and exciting decorations. Share them with your classmates and friends!

To use this tool:

  • The first thing you need to do is to choose the objects (plants, rocks or woods) you want to use in your fish tank. This is done in the Plants Manager part - This is the first window that shows up.
    Click on the objects you want and click on "Add"
  • When your done adding your objects, click on "Continue" (which is on the upper-right corner).
  • Now you can start building your aquascape: 1. Choose a plant 2. Choose a color for that plant 3. Adjust the height 4. Click on the map to add a pot
  • To remove a pot from the map Ctrl+click on it.
  • You can change the aquarium dimensions with the three input boxes on the upper part. Than clicking on "Update".
  • To change the view angle, click on the tank, release and move the mouse. Click on the tank area again to make it stick.
  • If you want to share your work with your friends, you can save it. On the bottom part you can name your work and than click on "Save". You will get a link to your new creation. Note: The work will only be saved if you actually click on the link.
