Video playlist. Most all vids support at least hd, 4k, and many higher resolutions. Some are neet to see at .25 or .5x speed. One of my favorite things to watch this time were the dark field ciliates processing lots of water. Have to go full screen and you can see the currents flowing by.

How about scanning electron microscope images? Has anyone collected nice images on relevant coral/microfauna specimens?

I haven't heard of a hobbyist posting any SEM shots. That'd be interesting, though.

Going 3" into a 5-6" area of my sand bed.

Looks a bit murky. I am not sure what you'll see.

Lots of detritus. Not nearly as many nematodes as I was expecting. Only found one. Lots of bacteria of course. Some cyanobacteria. I don't think I saw any dinos and I didn't think I would much further below the surface.

And a couple really cool things I haven't been able to capture on video before. Just forced myself to stop or I'll be up way to late. Will work on uploads later after I get some sleep.

I agree that sleep is a high priority item.

This critter was awesome to watch. I can't wait to see the video. It has uploaded and will watch it again later. First time I've caught this one on the side view and super fast when it wants to be.

I was about to hang it up for the night after that last last find... then I found this crazy "hairy" ciliate with weird stuff all over it. And the dark field really bought it out.

Then it just stopped moving... And turns out it was covered in bacteria. Either it was dyeing and the bacteria was feasting or it died because of the bacteria. But the bacteria after the ciliate stopped moving started moving on.

I stepped away and came about about 30 minutes later... Seemed to be not much left of the ciliate and more bacteria was wondering off still.
