Copepod with eggs. Is not it a beauty? Fun facts: they don’t need heart or gills, but the neurons quality is up to par with the vertebrates. To jump away from predators and stalkers with microscopes. 80x .

Копепод, веслоногое ракообразное с авоськами 😉 В авоськах яйца. Красиво. Чуть интересного: в сердце и жабрах у них нужды нет - очень мелкие, и так норм. А вот нейроны у них на заглядение сравнимы с нейронами позвоночных. Наверное, для повышенной прыгучести от хищников и других любопытствующих. 80x

Histological stains

Basic dyes react with anionic or acidic components in cells. Nucleic acids are acidic, and therefore bind to basic dyes.

  • Methyl green - stains green
  • Methylene blue - stains blue
  • Pyronin G - stains red
  • Toluidine blue - stains blue

Acidic dyes react with cationic or basic components in cells. Proteins and other components in the cytoplasm are basic, and will bind to acidic dyes.
 Another way of saying this is that cytoplasmic proteins are acidophilic (acid liking - i.e. bind to acidic dyes).

  • Acid fuschin - stains red
  • Aniline blue - stains blue
  • Orange G - stains orange

The term ‘water flea’ is used a bit different depending on who you ask. Some places a water flea is described as any member of the order cladocera. Other places only members of the suborder anomopoda is considered water fleas. And some will even refer to almost all tiny crustaceans as water fleas. However, despite all this confusion, all animals in this clip are water fleas, and they are some of my favorite animals to observe under the microscope!

A couple of days ago I took a moss sample from a tree and it was filled with tardigrades of different species, I counted at least six. This clip is a compilation of some of the different ones I found, can you tell them apart? There are around 1200 known species of tardigrade in the world divided on three classes, eutardigrada, heterotardigrada and mesotardigrada. The last class, mesotardigrada, only has one species which was found in Japan in 1937 but got destroyed by an earthquake so some say there are only two classes! In this clip you can see examples of both of these two classes.

These tiny organisms are fairly common inhabitants in ponds. All of them are just barely visible to the naked eye, and only when the light is right. If you look straight down in a pond you will have a very hard time finding them. But when the water is in a glass jar or so, you are able to see a lot of the tiny life. I took a micropipette and started to extract some organisms from my sample and put a few different ones on a slide. All the creatures you can see are swimming around inside a single drop of water. So, you can easily imagine how much life there is able to fit in a large body of water!

This is an amoeba moving around. The way an amoeba moves is by changing its shape and forming projections called pseudopodia. These projections are also used when the amoeba feeds by surrounding an object and ingesting it, essentially hugging its food into its “belly”. If you look closely you are able to see the cytoplasm inside the cell moving around along with ingested material, the nucleus and other cellular components. This footage is sped 5x!

This pretty little thing is a marine bristle worm or a polychaete if you are fancy. There are over 10,000 known species, and most of them are marine, only about 150 species are found in freshwater. This one is from a water sample from a beach and is only about 2 mm long! Polychaetes can be found in all oceans at all depths, one species has even been found at the deepest point on the planet over 10 km beneath the ocean surface! Even though this one is very small the smallest ones are about 1 mm and the largest ones can be as long as 3 meters! These types of worms have been around for over 500 million years, and with such a diversity in habitats, from the deepest ocean to the highest bodies of freshwater, they will probably be around for a long, long time!

Reposted from @my.microscopic.world Sound on!🔈Look at this monster, swinging its head from side to side like an alligator of the microworld. This beast is a huge tardigrade, and this species is a predator! Many tardigrades eat plant material, but some prefer animal cells. They eat anything from single celled organisms to tiny animals like rotifers. This tardigrade is one of the biggest and fastest I have ever seen. It looked like a tank powering through the debris on the slide as it speeded around looking for a meal.

Currently, I am in a deathly battle with myself over the purchase of a microscope.
I can’t precisely justify making what will amount to approximately $130 purchase of something I do not strictly need. Mainly, this would be a hobby purchase, something that fuels my particular interest, but nothing else.
However, the temptation is strong. The thought of the sheer number of single-cell organisms in standing water is enough to make me want to give in.  

Satan, give me strength.
