…the most anticipated fish book for 2020.” – PFK Magazine

Imagine yourself floating in a crystal-clear river filled with some of your favorite tropical fish.  When you look down at the river bottom you see Stingrays and schools of Corydoras.  When you look to your right you see Cardinal tetras, and to your left you witness schools of Severum cichlids.

You lie there, motionless, observing, and narrating what you see, what the fish do.
That’s what’s in this book.

Tropical fish from a different angle, literally. This Mikolji masterpiece is a must have for any Aquarist, Ichthyologist or aquatic hobbyist.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR.

Ivan Mikolji is a groundbreaking Venezuelan explorer, audio visual artist, and environmentalist who studies freshwater flora and fauna and their habitats. His many career distinctions include pioneering the underwater filmmaking and photography of tropical freshwater fish in their natural biome, creating the Wild Aquarium movement, and the initial discovery and documentation of many species of plants and freshwater fish.

The brand leader of Mikolji Corp and the founder of the Venezuelan Fish Foundation, Mikolji is dedicated to the maxim he coined: you cannot preserve something that you don’t know exists. 

For the past couple decades, audiences—from scientists to conservationists to hobbyists—have found his work valuable and remained loyally submerged in the content he has produced. 

Preferably called and familiarly known simply as Mikolji, he was born in 1972 in Caracas, Venezuela to a chemical engineer and an English translator. Early on Mikolji remembers looking beyond what he saw in aquariums like his father’s, wondering about the fish’s original habitat and how it had lived in the wild. At age 14 his sister gave him a camera and he used it to capture this budding interest in science and natural environments.
