What should I do if I want to observe fungi?

Fungi can be interesting to observe, but not all of them are healthy and molds that have spoiled food are particularly a problem.

Which kinds of mounting medium are there?

Mounting media for making permanent slides can be classified into solvent-based and water-based mounting media.

Which mounting medium should I use?

If you look for a general-purpose mounting medium for making permanent slides, then I recommend Euparal.

How can samples be stored before mounting?

Alcohol is a solvent of choice for preserving specimens. Alcohol, however, causes some specimens to shrink.

I can not see any water organisms! What am I doing wrong?

Pond water is a favorite sample to observe. Sometimes, you do not see anything, however. The reason is usually that you took a sample from the water itself and not of the ground.
