Amano is a japanese scientist that does some of the best aquascapes in the world. He is also responsonible for the discovery of several species.. such as Amano shrimp. There are several other species ending with japonica, most of them are from him.
Edit: He may not actually be a scientist after all, and he only popularized the Amano shrimp, didn't actually discover them apparently. Here's a link to his wiki page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takashi_Amano
