Caption: Daphnia sp. water fleas swimming in water, seen through a microscope. These are freshwater aquatic crustaceans that swim by beating their antennae, and feed on algae, bacteria and protozoa. Daphnia is a popular model organism in biological research, as its transparent carapace permits easy observation of its organs. Adults can reach around 2mm in length.
