John Pini, an Illinois native just 29 years old, arguably dominated the nano tank competition at the 2016 Aquascaping Live! competition. Pini had only been aquascaping for 2 years, and yet he managed to conceive a design that stopped people in their tracks. The first-place, “Best In Show” nano tank entry was a source of conversation all weekend.
Pini is also one of the founding members of the Chicago Aquatic Plant Society.
