Replacement minions

The sea monkeys died due to an algal bloom - which I left to propagate over the summer.

Upon coming back from holiday and lifting the bottle for inspection I found the entire population had adhered to the glass, clearing the water - and my picking it up disturbed the precarious balance causing the biofilm to fold in on itself.



















So now its sits there swaying in the breeze (feet kicking the desk, vigorous typing etc) and releasing bubbles from within its folds. 

Beautiful.

*and yes, I am aware of the erroneous spelling.  It's a disease, accept it.
