[APD] Grey slime algae

Well the samples I had all turned to mush but I did get plenty of tough
resistant spores. I tried to grow these out but they did not grow. 
I can say it's very UNLIKELY it's an algae at all.
Most algae has some protoplast left, something besides just spores. 
The samples were stored and refrigerated and another had lugol's added.
Both these methods should have preserved some algal material.

Fungi or bacteria perhaps.

I'll try one more time if some one wants to send me some. Wait till Monday
to send it in a letter envelope with a little packing. I'm going to grow it
out if I have too. 
Please email me off list till then.
