Dear Listers.....Greetings..
It is nice to write to you all again after a long
break.  This may be a stupid question but I am
seeing it for the 1st time. When I was counting
the Zooxanthellae density in Acropora hyacinthus,
I could see some zooxanthellae with a tail like
structure, rather they look like a horn. Does
anyone know what it can be, or is it that I have
started seeeing things!!!  I was able to take
some 20X photographs of these zooxnathellae (if
anyone wants to see it, I can send it).
It is just my interest to know about it. Its nice
to see zooxnathellae with horns, after all these
days seeing them as plain rounded structures!
