Last week we ventured to Bulgaria - the land of the rosesto welcome the latest aquascaper to join CO2 Artist team.
Mikica Markovic who is based in Varna, Bulgaria, has an amazing passion for aquascaping. Beginning at the age of 12 with a single fish he kept in a jar, With a burning need to know more, he set about learning as much as he could about the hobby. It didn't take him long to discover planted aquariums and especially the world of Takashi Amanos nature aquariums.
With his love of nature and aquariums now combined, He set about researching everything he could about what it takes to create, grow and care for these wonderful underwater works of art called aquascapes.
Mikica is best known for his Wabi kusa styles and has had some success at competition level already.
His biggest passion is when he is able to share his love for aquascaping and helping new hobbyists get started just like he did in the beginning. For this reason he has recently began working on his very own aquascaping studio in his move town. It is here where he hopes to show his works and at the same time invite people to try aquascaping and teach them all he knows.
We think guys like Mikica are so important in the aquascaping community. Introducing new people and helping beginners is what continues to grow the hobby we all love.
We are delighted to be able to support Mikica in his efforts to promote his passion and hoper you all get behind him too.
Welcome to the team!
