Thank you And you should definitely consider it. It's a good way to sneak yourself into class to see how they run it, too. LoL

BTW!!! Does anyone have 22 transfer pipettes that I could pick up before Monday? OR know a place where I can find them? There are 22 kids in the class (EDIT: done)

I got a lot of nice algae samples yesterday at the BAS meeting (thank you!!!11!!!!1!)
Here are the samples collected thus far:
Bladderworts/Liverworts:
Subwassertang
Mini pellia
U. gibba (also from aokashi)
Riccia (from sonicpath and acitydweller)

Mosses:
Fissidens fontanus
Java moss (from sonicpath)

Algaes:
Diatoms (from Ridgewood Aq)
Hair Algae (some also from ^)
Black beard algae
Fuzz Algae
Cyanobacteria (only to smell)

Floater:
Frogbit
Salvinia
Duckweed
Giant duckweed (from acitydweller)
dwarf lettuce

Epiphytes:
Java fern
Anubia (from Heartnet)

Stems:
Myriophyllum
Cambomba
Hygro tiger
Najas

Root:
Sword

---
I don't know whether to make them break into groups, each with a sample, or have them each at a 'station' where there would only be bladderworts, or only stems. And then gather then to talk about what they observed? Or just let them bring their books to each station and draw what they want?
