I was performing an experiment where I shone a lamp onto Euglena specimens in a Petri dish in order to observe population growth. However, the strangest thing happened - the next day, sure was an increase in Euglena numbers, but none of them were moving, and furthermore, some looked as though they were being cut apart by the middle, with a transparent line cutting across vertically (imaging a long euglena laying flat, and then a big transparent streak cutting vertically down). I don't know what's going on, but I'm worried as I need to write this up and have no idea about what to say. There was supposed to be a bit of population growth, not death. If someone can explain what has happened, I'll be happy.
