Two rotifers for identification please

Post by Thomas Ashcraft »

Update: I might have made a mistake by posting a poor image so have removed it in hopes that they can be identified from the video which is much clearer.

I am hoping to get identifications for these two rotifers. I posted a video here that shows them interacting :

I think the tube rotifer is a Floscularia, possibly a Limnias shiawasseensis or perhaps a Limnias melicerta ?

The other rotifer may be a Lecane?

Not sure about either. Help with identification is welcome.
Thank you!
