No luck for the link. But sorry to hear! He was a huge person for planted aquariums, and the hobby overall.

If this is true I am devastated and such a huge loss and inspirational man to me and many many others. He left his mark in the world with creating the worlds largest nature aquarium as his last huge achievement. RIP a life well lived.

This is really sad! I have watched tons of videos of him.  Quote from Wikipedia "  
Amano died of pneumonia at 11:18 AM on the 4th of August, 2015 at his home in Niigata, Japan."

Below is a link for reference if you like to read more.

What?! He was still so young! ADA said he had been battling with a disease for several years...

I am happy he was still able to finish his last masterpiece. He has left us a great legacy and he will be truly missed.

I sure hope ADA keeps on going without him...
