Can anyone point me in the right direction for an id of these critters ?
They look like an embryo to me.
They're attached to the algae by a triangular tether.
Approximately 30 - 40 microns.
There's nothing in the water sample that is big enough to lay these, plenty of rotifers a few vorticella many smaller stuff.
The bigger one is a crop.
The 2nd one is a real heavy crop.
Is the 3rd image possibly what it turns into or is it something completely different ( which is what I suspect )
Thanks for any help
