Hello Haris,

the alga is Zygnema (Zygnematales), the animal: a rotifer, the trap is: air.

Very interesting. Was the algae moving, like a cyanobacteria?

I did'nt notice any movement . The strange thing is that when i first prepare the slide the algae were in random positions but after several hours when i relook them they were parallel to each other without leaving any space between them.
Maybe is some kind of movement or is due to water drying .

I have seen drying water move the small things on the slide into "sandbars" as it dries up. Maybe it did the same thing to the strands of algae.
