If you don't want dinos, you need to replace them with something, diatoms have volunteered for the job!
Speaking of diatoms, DNA, scale is a headache, and in a pinch, I've used groups of diatoms as scale bars.
For instance, in joti's post the pigmented part of those diatoms is about 20 microns I think.

Dunno how flawed that method is, but maybe it gets within +-50%
I was going to get a scale slide until I saw how much they cost :O So any suggestions as to how to get rid of the diatoms now?
