volox are one celled algae they live together in a colony the colony is a hollow ball with 500-20000 cells that are by their selves they move by each cell having two flagella the flagella beat together to roll into a ball through the water volvox is motile green algal colony composed of 500 to 50000 cells arranged along periphery of a hollow mucilaginous sphere they are often invisible with the necked eye

paramecium feed on microorganisms like bacteria,algae,and yeasts paramecium uses cilia to sweep food just as water into the cell mouth after it falls to the oral groove paramecium can reproduce asexually two to three times a day the paramecium are in the carbon cycle because they eat bacteria very often found on decaying plants paramecium also will eat the decaying plant matter of addition to bacteria
