Apparently, Takashi Amano passed away yesterday due to pneumonia. Sad to see him go, he was a true visionary in the world of aquaria. I remember when I first started researching planted aquariums and came across him and his works, I was hooked. After lookin at some pics of the lisbon aquarium, it's a shame we'll never get to see another masterpiece.

Hobby's never going to be the same without him. He truly was a pioneer with his approach to planted tanks and aquascape theories. RIP.

A huge loss to the aquatic hobbyists and to his family even a bigger loss. He made aquascaping with plants what it is today!

I was shocked to hear this. I have not been following much of the news and just heard about this. What a sad loss. He has been a inspiration to the hobby and has changed much of it to where it is now. A true pioneer that will be missed. Such a sad event for someone that had so much more to bring to our world. It was a dream of mine one day to meet him and visit his museum. Rip
