Jerry on AJ cover?? I don't think so.

Carlos,
That is not a legitimate Aqua Journal cover. Especially #100, a fairly recent issue (Feb. 2004) which I have. Unless ADA does a separate issue for China or something, which I doubt but don't know. As well, while that's not the worst shot I've ever seen, but it is nothing that would be used for an Aqua Journal cover. Additionally, I have every AJ from late 1999 through November 2004 ( an issue which does, BTW feature a 4 page article on ADG), and have never seen an aquarium that was not an ADA/Amano tank ever shown- not even once and I checked. I think this is something someone did in Photoshop, not trying to dog "Jerry" or anything...

It's interesting because the text in the lower left corner matches that of February 2002 issue, and this one with Jerry on the cover has that same date, but that was #76, not #100 (Plus the text is in Japanese, not Chinese so that kind of bunks the separate issue for China theory). If you notice it says AGA in that lower left text also. That issue features an article on 2001 AGA Convention and has shots of Amano touring Chattanooga/ The aquarium/ speaking at the Convention, etc. How could they have been to issue # 100 in China, and only on #76 in Japan? I'm sure I sound like a freak here, but AquaJournal is sacred grounds for me and using it for any misrepresentation is in my view, not cool. I mean doing it for your own amusement, fine, but putting it out there/up on forums- down right deceptive. Perhaps something was lost in translation here and Jerry didn't mean to pass this off as legitimate, but rather a novelty.

Let me just say otherwise that Jerry is an amazing aquascape designer and is laying down some simply beautiful and wonderfully composed scapes and I respect his artistry and talent immensely.

ADG featured in AQUA JOURNAL # 109

Thanks so much! I wasn't sure how many people in the US get AQUA JOURNAL- you can, as you know, subscribe directly from ADA for about $100/year (a bargain if you ask me). Hey just a heads-up - ADG is is working on a distributorship of the ADA product line. We are meeting with Amano's main-man at the AGA Convention to finalize details.
