Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”

Haven't seen any parameciums in my aquarium since late last fall, when I had fresh river water. Diatoms either, but I got some of those in my recent river and puddle samples. I have a nice little year round running creek very near here, but I can't get down to it easily. I'd love to test some of that. :)
