I found my first critters in a drop of aquarioum water. As a matter of fact there was quite a few of them. I did manage to get some poor quality pics of them. My camera adapter hasn't arrived yet, so I did it handheld above the ep. So I guess it's my first capture...

I won't bore you with the pic and I really don't know what they are, but I'm thrilled nevertheless.

I think Ive id'd it as a Rotifer. It has the two rear toes/feet and the wheel head. What Rotifer it is, I've no idea. Shocked

I was tempted to say in reply to what is it - "The two toed wheel headed rotifer!" but I know nothing about them so I looked them up on the Web and these sites may help:-

Just put "rotifers" into your search engine there are loads of links to identification sites.
