    Interesting shot. It looks like there are two matching #crustaceans stuck to the side of the #larvacean #house

    I don't think they're crustaceans.. Nice catch of the #Larvacean #house anyway

    These are more opaque parts of its filter, probably because of accumulated particles in those. It'll have to leave the house soon!

    Nice larvacean house : the two opaque things on the left end are the inlet filters of the house, the one on the right side is a copepod

    copepods often like to eat on particles accumulated in and on appendicularian/larvacean houses
