Blue Fish Inspirational Tribute Series

Most of us have people that inspire us, that influence us and change our lives. The Mikolji Blue Fish Inspirational Tribute Series is my way to commemorate these very special people, influencers who inspired my work. Some of these people are very well known in the aquarium hobby and some are not, others I have never met in person or have passed away, leaving a profound impact on my life.
 
 
All titles refer to a persons name transformed into a scientific name. The scientific names do not follow the rigorous binomial system rules of nomenclature, they are intended to make you smile. All the drawings in the Blue Fish Inspirational Tribute look similar, just like a school of fish in the wild would, but because they are all individually drawn originals, they are all different, just like a school of fish in the wild.
