The July issue’s star of the month is a Great British classic — the delightful stickleback. Often considered a pond fish, we look at how these little charmers can also make for a wonderful, seasonal indoor project to bring a little nature in to the home.

For a visual feast, internationally renowned photographer, explorer and author Ivan Mikolji takes a dive into the waters of Colombia, where morichales and inselbergs bedeck the landscape.
And if that’s not enough, I take a look at the curious maassi loach, Oliver Lucanus journeys out to where the Texas cichlids are, Gabor Horvath gets to work breeding red-cheek krobia, and we explore the causes of fish stress, and pond plants good enough to eat.
