Gorgeous images! :)

This is not Vorticella, but Pseudovorticella. This genus has a reticulate silverline system (as beautifully shown in your last image), whereas Vorticella has simple horizontal striations.

Many species of Pseudovorticella carry symbiotic algae, so identifying to species level would require measurements and clearer views of organelles.

Hi Jacek,

Bruce is right. This is Psudovorticella because of the pattern of pellicular tubercles. On your last picture at hight magnification of the surface ornamentation you can see an "empty" row, what is typical for Psudovorticella fasciculuata.
