The really ironic thing is that my biggest problem is in getting these things to stay alive in the lab. Part of it is just inattention (I have a lot of other commitments), but the main issue I have is that contaminating algae out-compete dinos in the nutrient rich media I am accustomed to using. So I have the options of isolating the dinos and waiting the very long time it takes to go from a single cell to a large enough number to work with, or trying to find a medium that will allow the dinos to out-compete the other algae. And all of you have stumbled upon that magic dino medium by accident.

It would be nice if someone nearby with dinos could just give me 100 gallons of their water for me to use as growth medium.
