Hey everybody! I'm SO PUMPED to finally get to post about this app. I'm in need of testers for a new app that's been in the works since the fall of 2017. It's called Aquarium Plan AR (http://aquariumplan.com) and its mission is to help you design and plan your next aquarium! It was created to solve three key issues all aquarists face.
  1. Will my new tank fit in my room?
  2. Does the placement of my aquarium work with my furnishes?
  3. Can I convince my family to let me start an(other) aquarium :-D

See it in action here:

iPhone only for now, but if all goes well it will be coming to Android shortly after. Part of the reason for this is that Augmented Reality support for Android devices is a bit spotty.

As you all know, aquariums are expensive to ship, laborious to install, and once they are filled with water they do not move. It is CRITICAL that we have every tool possible to make sure we avoid any potential headaches. When I was starting as an early reefer, I used cardboard to make mockups of my future tanks and try them around the room. As that progressed I used Photoshop to fake the look. It was fun but it took a ton of time and if I wanted to see another size or angle that meant more hours spent.

Aquarium PlannAR (see what I did there) allows you to quickly and easily create an aquarium of any dimensions, add a stand of any height, fill it with some fake-looking aquascape (version 1.0 crudeness) and place it in your room using the magic of augmented reality.

THE FUTURE! More features are coming in the future to allow you to even better plan your tanks. Like, awesome awesome features. As with my other aquatic apps, I update them often as feedback is provided. I needed this app as much as you guys do, so I'll continue to work on it until it's perfect-ish.

Please help me test by:
Signing up as a beta tester on the website! http://aquariumplan.com/
Then post your results here. Hopefully, there aren't too many hitchhikers or pests to get rid of.

I use your Camera app and took this pictures of my tank with my iPhone 6. Also took a short video and looks good.

Thanks
