Hi all!
Could somebody define what is it?
I collected rain water, add BG-11 medium (blue-green) and something was grown after 1 month. Cyanobacteria? Green alga? May be define family or even genera?
It was good if you give me other address/link where specialist can give answer

I'm surpised because I've always thought that Chlorella doesn't aggregate with other cells.
But it seems to be that they can. Really?

Coincidentally, I'm trying to culture algae (green water) for copepods etc and I've read that the most common species are Chlorella, Ankistrodesmus, Scenedesmus and Euglena.
That's how I knew it was that species.
