Amoeba?

Post by pwnell »

Found this in my tropical aquarium. First one DIC, second one fluorescence with a new cube I just received.

At one o'clock there seems to be a flagellum.

Did you use fluorochromes? What is the new cube?

No fluorochromes. This is all autofluorescence. The new cube is similar to Rogelio's Nikon UV-2B

It's impossible to say anything about this organism concerning its ID. I need more information: how did it move, was it always rounded up, is there a flagellum etc.
