    He died yesterday of penumonia. Probably the best aquascaper in the world, certainly the best known.

    That's so sad.
    I looked up to him so much.

    Where did you hear about this?
  7. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    Interesting. The only place I can find mentioning his death is Wikipedia, nowhere else. It says he died yesterday of pneumonia.... maybe someone made that up?
  8. BornThisWayBettasFishlore VIPMember

    Maybe. I researched it a bit too, and it isn't even showing up on Wikipedia.......
  9. babynemoValued MemberMember

    I googled it too,
    ", Amano Takashi, born July 18, 1954 - August 4, 2015) "

    Yeah, but it only shows that from a result on Wikipedia.

    It's evidently also on a Japanese state news site - in case you read Japanese -
  12. babynemoValued MemberMember

    Well, I just think about it this way. It won't show up on his website or anything because his family is probably grieving and I don't know. I just think if it's true it's sad, if it's not then that's good. But I guess we'll see if anywhere else says something.
  13. NCE12940Well Known MemberMember

    I doubt it'd be on a Japanese news site if it weren't true.
  14. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    I think you missed these two posts BDpups. I deleted mine because I was ninja'd....and the top post of these two gave a link that proves that it probably wasn't faked.

    Thanks. This is too bad. He was the best.
  16. babynemoValued MemberMember

    I guess it's true.
  17. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    Yeah, RIP. Sad to hear.
  18. BornThisWayBettasFishlore VIPMember

    Okay, thanks guys. Very sad indeed. :(
  19. babynemoValued MemberMember

    Definitely sad.

    Yes, he was much too young.
