CLASSIFYING SALTWATER🔬 MICROSCOPIC ORGANISMS🧠

in StemSociallast month
If you think you have seen everything, then you have to prepare to see some species of micro-macro organisms that are common in salt water and that you have probably never seen in your life! Although they are scary, they all have an important role in the saltwater ecosystem, many are food for the trophic chain, others are decomposers and some are photosynthetic! and well some are predators of other organisms !!!😮😮

Si crees que has visto todo, entonces tienes que prepararte para ver algunas especies de micro-macro organismos que son comunes en la agua salada y que probablemente nunca los habias visto en tu vida! aunque dan miedo todos tienen un roll importante en el ecosistema de agua salada, muchos son alimento para la cadena trofica, otros son descomponedores y algunos son fotosinteticos! y bueno algunos son depredadores de otros organismos!!! 🔬🧫

In my store there is a product that comes as frozen food for aquariums, and that serves as food for fresh and salt water fish, it is called "MYSIS", but what is MYSIS? What does that word mean? Well, while I was taking my salt water sample from an aquarium that I had set up last year, the first thing I captured was a very small organism! LET'S SEE IT!🤔😮
En mi tienda existe un producto que viene como comida congelada para acuariofilia, y que sirve de alimento para peces de agua dulce y salada, se llama "MYSIS", pero que es MYSIS?? que significa esa palabra?, bueno mientras tomaba mi muestra de agua salada que fue de un acuario que habia montado el año pasado lo primero que capture fue un organismo muy pequeño!!! VAMOS A VERLO!🤪🤯

img_20210904_015117.jpg

If suddenly you are observing your aquarium and you see a small organisms pass at a great speed then you may be seeing a MYSIS, basically the misids are cosmopolitan we observe them all over the world from salt water to brackish water, there are more than 400 species of organisms distributed in this fantastic family, Biologically they are grouped in the class (crustaceans) so we can define them as small shrimp-like organisms with a very low mass weight so the density of the water pushes them to the surface and they have to be constantly swimming to the bottom of the sea!😁😁
Si de pronto estas observando tu acuario y ves pasar a una gran velocidad un pequeño organismos entonces puede que estes viendo a un MYSIS, basicamente los misidos son cosmopolitas los observamos en todo el mundo desde agua salada hasta en aguas salobres, son mas de 400 especies de organismos distribuidos en esta fantastica familia, Biologicamente estan agrupados en la clase (crustaceos) entonces los podemos definir como pequeños organismos parecidos a camarones con un peso en masa muy bajo por lo que la densidad del agua los empuja a la superficie y tienen que estar constantemente nadando hacia el fondo del mar! 😃🤣

They are very interesting animals that filter plant detritus and other animals are basically their main source of food, they prefer to live at the bottom of the sea to avoid wasting energy when trying to fight against the density of the water that pushes them up! your mouth is the structure where the feeding takes place!😁😁😮😮🤔🤔🤔
Son animales muy interesantes que filtran el detritus vegetal y resto de animales basicamente es su principal fuente de alimento, tienen prefieren vivir en el fondo del mar para evitar desgastar energia al intentar luchar contra la densidad de la agua que los empuja hacia arriba! su boca es la estructura donde se realiza la alimentacion!😶

Trying to understand the Biology of these animals is not easy, they are very few studied, it is believed that they are very old and that they were frozen in the ice ages, until they conquered various ecosystems! because? easy because some species breathe through gills and others breathe through their shell that consists of capillaries that absorb O2, we can summarize them as evolutionary machines!😲😲
Intentar comprender la Biologia de estos animales no es facil, son muy pocos estudiados, se cree que son muy antiguos y que se congelaron en las epocas glaciares, hasta conquistar diversos ecosistemas! por que? facil porque algunas especies tienen respiracion mediante branqueas y otros respiran mediante su caparazon que consta de vasos capilares que absorben O2, podemos resumirlos como maquinas evolutivas!😄😄

It caught my attention while I was investigating about it and how resistant they were, I subjected it to various temperatures in the same water and it did not suffer any damage, also when I took them from the water sample some were out of the water, so I noticed that they could retain oxygen for a long time out of the water!😮😮
Me llamo mucho la atencion mientras investigaba sobre el y lo resistente que eran, lo someti a varias temperaturas en la misma agua y no sufrio ningun daño, ademas cuando los tome de la muestra de agua algunos estaban fuera del agua, por lo que note que podian retener oxigeno por mucho tiempo fuera del agua! 😁😁

NO!! not a starfish! it seems but it is not! Do you know what organism is this ??? .... That's right, colleague, this is a photo of an ophiuroids, they are grouped in class (echinoderms) and there are around 2005 species distributed in the world! These animals have 5 arms that grow around the central disk, which is the one we can see in the photo!😃😃
NO!! no es una estrella de mar! parece pero no lo es! sabes que organismo es este???.... Asi es colega este es una foto de un ofiuroideos, estan agrupados en la clase (equinodermos) y existen alrededor de 2005 especies distribuidos en el mundo! estos animales tienen 5 brazos que crecen alrededor del disco central que es ese que podemos ver en la foto!😅😅

img_20210904_020640.jpg

img_20210904_020747.jpg

This is how its five arms around the central disk is the most relevant characteristic so as not to confuse it with the famous starfish, the locomotion is thanks to the arms, they do not have suction cups and they are surrounded by thorns!😶😶
Asi es sus cinco brazos al rededor del disco central es la caracteristica mas relevante para no confundirla con las famosas estrellas de mar, la locomocion es gracias a los brazos, no presentan ventosas y estan rodeados de espinas!😣😣

img_20210904_020748.jpg

img_20210904_020809.jpg

The central disc is important for this animal because inside there are some sacs that intervene in respiration, it also has plates around it that act as small jaws, its mouth also acts as an excretory system and expels waste there! many species have a male and a female and the reproduction is sexual expelling the gametes to the outside!🧠🦾🦿
El disco central es importante para este animal porque dentro se ubican unos sacos que intervienen en la respiracion, tambien tiene unas placas alrededor que actuan como pequeñas mandibulas, tambien su boca actua como sistema excretor y por alli expulsa los residuos! muchas especies tienen un macho y una hembra y la reproduccion es sexual expulsando los gametos al exterior!😊

Their ecology is well known, they live between stone crevices in the water, they prefer places away from light, they can feed on suspended particles but some are predators that have the ability to capture small fish with their tentacles!😶😶😋😋😋😋😋😋
Su ecologia es conocida, habita entre las grietas de piedras en el agua, prefieren lugares lejos de la luz, se pueden alimentar de particulas en suspension pero algunas son depredadores que tienen la capacidad de capturar peces pequeños con sus tentaculos! 🤯😬

CLASSIFYING MICROSCOPIC SPECIES 🧠👨‍🎓👨‍💻

img_20210905_165120.jpg

After doing this for so many years you learn not to underestimate nature! never underestimate the power of a drop of water !!! although you don't see anything in it there are thousands, or millions of microscopic organisms and some have fantastic characteristics! YOU WILL BE SURPRISED what some do to survive!😋
Luego de hacer esto por tantos años aprendes a no subestimar la naturaleza! nunca subestimes el poder de una gota de agua!!! aunque no vez nada en ella hay miles, o millones de organismos microscopicos y algunos tienen caracteristicas fantasticas! TE SORPRENDERIAS lo que algunos hacen para sobrevivir!👨‍🏫👨‍🎓

I present to you the terror of the saltwater aquarium, the famous fire worm, a very unpleasant animal with a body full of thorns and a dark appearance! These animals are from the Amphinomidae family, they are only marine, they can measure up to 15 centimeters and do you know why they call them "fire worms"? Well, I invite you to touch one .... You will feel that your skin burns due to the damage caused by its skin!🐛🐛🐛
Te presento al terror de la acuarofilia de agua salada, el famoso gusano de fuego, un animal muy desagradable con un cuerpo lleno de espinas y un aspecto tenebroso! estos animales son de la familia Amphinomidae son unicamente marinos, pueden medir hasta 15centimetros y sabes porque les dicen "gusanos de fuego" ? Bueno te invito a tocar uno.... Sentiras que tu piel se quema por el daño que causa sus quetas!💥💥💥

With the naked eye we cannot see anything in our sample of seawater, I wanted to do an experiment looking at water under the microscope with algae and another without algae! with a magnification of only 5x we cannot even observe organisms in detail but I can see things moving, slowly and quickly!😍😍
A simple vista no podemos ver nada en nuestra muestra de agua marina, quise hacer un experimento viendo agua bajo el microscopio con algas y otra sin algas! con una ampliacion de solo 5x no podemos aun observar organismos con detalles pero si puedo ver cosas moviendose, lento y rapidamente!🔬🔬

I want to clarify that for the identification of microorganisms I use the reference (Atlas of organisms / Heinz, Dieter, omega editorial, 1987) As you can see when I use the 50x objective we come across diatoms in various ways! What are they? because diatoms are unicellular organisms, bone microalgae, which are part of the phytoplankton and which serve as photosynthesizers in bodies of water in addition to serving as food for other species!👨‍🏫👨‍🎓
Quiero aclarar que para la identificacion de microorganismos utilice la referencia (Atlas de los organismos/ Heinz, Dieter, editorial omega, 1987) Como puedes ver cuando utilizo el objetivo de 50x nos topamos con diatomeas de varias formas! que son? pues las diatomeas son organismos unicelulares osea microalgas, que forman parte del fitoplacton y que sirven como fotosintetisadores en los cuerpos de agua ademas de servir como alimento a otras especies!🔬🔬

img_20210904_023311.jpg

picasion.com_4d0c4954cec237bbd5df2febccbb3b2b.gif

In this short video we can see a diatom that moves in the water, although it does not have a flagellum, this particular species does not have its own movement, some can move through contractions, with this I can identify the species, but at the bottom of the sample we also see an organism that moves using flagellum!😃😃
En este corto video podemos ver una diatomea que se desplaza en el agua, aunque no tiene flagelo esta especie en particular no posee movimiento propio, algunas pueden moverse mediante contracciones, con esto puedo llegar a identificar la especie, pero en el fondo de la muestra tambien vemos un organismo que se desplaza usando flagelo!🦿🦾

This is another example of how algae can live in colonies, for example here we see two individuals in colonies, identifying the species is not easy! but we can summarize that it is a kind of red algae that is also part of the phytoplankton and fulfills the same role as diatoms.💖💥💥
Este es otro ejemplo de como las algas pueden vivir en colonias, por ejemplo aqui vemos dos individuos en colonias, identificar la especie no es facil! pero podemos resumir que es una especie de alga roja que tambien forma parte del fitoplacton y cumple el mismo roll que las diatomeas.💨💥

This would say that it is the main group of microorganisms of the protists, the famous ciliates group more than 3000 species, they are cosmopolitan, this particular species if you see the photo and the video is like seeing a plant, which moves and traps its meal!😮😮
Este diria que es el principal grupo de microorganismos de los protistas, los famosos ciliados agrupan a mas de 3000 especies, son cosmopolitas, esta especie en particular si ves la foto y el video es como ver una planta, que se mueve y que atrapa su comida!😃😃

If you look at the GIF you will be able to see the movement of small organisms that my microscope cannot capture, they are so small that even using 100x I can not see them!😮🤯

We can observe some species of flatworms, they are flattened marine worms😮😮

Do you see this organism as it has a "tail"? well this is an organism with a flagellum!😮

dd.jpg

These famous algae are known to have their own movement, they have a scourge in the video you can see the movement in detail! part of the phytoplankton are large photosynthetic organisms.😉💖💖💖💖💖💖💚💚💚💚💚
Estas famosas algas son conocidas por poseer movimiento propio tienen un flagelo en el video puedes ver con detalle el movimiento! forman parte del fitoplacton son grandes organismos fotosinteticos.💚

FAST MOVING MICROORGANISMS 🧠👨‍🎓👨‍💻

dd.jpg

These were undoubtedly my favorites, I just observed them around the algae and they are salt 😲water mites, they have 8 legs and therefore they can acquire a very fast movement and in any direction!💥

Ok my friends now the situation got interesting, he was observing two organisms that seemed to interact for a few minutes, my question is: are we seeing a budding? Are you exchanging genetic material? ..... If my experience does not fool me, we are in the presence of an asexual reproduction!😮
Ok mis amigos ahora la situacion se puso interesante, estuvo observando algunos minutos dos organismos que parecian que interactuaban, mi pregunta es: estamos viendo una gemacion? estan intercambiando material genetico?..... Si mi experiencia no me engaña estamos en presencia de una reproduccion asexual!😃

WHAT DID WE LEARN/ QUE APRENDIMOS🧠👨‍🎓👨‍💻

img_20210905_164419.jpg

We learned that there is enough life in a drop of water to fill many cities, that we can find interesting microscopic life in samples of salt water from aquariums, in addition to highlighting that the most complex organisms were observed in algae, and that the simplest ones such as diatoms around!😍

THANKS FOR READING ME🙂, PHOTOS OF MY PROPERTY🧠🦾👍 (The classification of the organisms were taken by the book (atlas of microorganisms) as mentioned above, the photos are my property, all the information provided in the post is my own, it was not used copied and pasted!)

BYEEE!!!! / UM GOSTOOO!!!🙋‍♂️👍

Sort:  

its amazing to see how small a lifeform can be

Thank for the comment

My pleasure dear

¡Hola!. Gracias por compartirnos estas valiosa información. Cuando trabajaba con el estereoscopio, siempre tenía curiosidad por saber quiénes eran esos microrganismos con alocado movimiento (jaja). Con esta publicación usted respondió esa pregunta. Ahora sé que son diversas especies de algas.

Aunque, debo confesar que cuando vi la primera imagen de la diatomea media anaranjada, creí que era un estoma cerrado (los abiertos son bien notorios), porque estoy acostumbrada a ver tejido vegetal. ¡Buenas vibras!.

well some are predators of other organisms

Lol it is a microbe eats microbe world we live in

This actually looks like Tenia spp's egg one of those organisms we use to study is medical school

Woow, asombroso amigo.
