This little peramecium was quite active. Many of these at 100x. More fun to watch live or on video which are coming up next.

I'm pretty sure I ruined their day (besides the fact I sucked them off the ATS with a pipette) when I went to 60x and 100x spring objectives. I noticed after that the ostracod shell was broken and the most mature upper left one was pushed back down in pretty solid.

The ostracods are interesting. To me, it looks like the eggs are about ready to hatch, and the animal inside is moving, but I am not very experienced with interpreting videos.

One was most definitely matured enough to go out on it's own very very soon.

Scraped off a little green film algae off my front glass before I cleaned it all off with my mag float. Almost all entirely Tetraselmis phytoplankton and various diatoms.

Those Tetraselmis LOVE light. If I kept focus on one spot long enough they would start swarming over to it and chaining together (film algae...). Also found Licmophora (triangle shaped diatom) that was newly forming and branched together still. First time being able to find that.

"Description: Epiphytic diatom, cells grow on a common stalk that is attached to rocks or algae..."

So the wedges are diatoms (25)? How about 44?

Yep, so is pic 10 and 11 a chained together group and the chain of diatoms next to the wedges in 25. They are all encased in a hard silicone shell (glass) and have oil in them. https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...ofuel-diatoms/
