I need help with this one question please!! You have a vial of Carchesium polypinum, a species of ciliates found in wastewater. You have just read that these protozoans produce a kind of mucus, which they secrete into the water. You wish to develop a laboratory model of wastewater treatment. As your model, you drop some India ink into a beaker of tap water and add a vial of ciliates. What effect might the mucus produced by the Carchesium have on the India ink? How might you apply your results to the effect of mucus on waste matter in water? You can refer to Figure 19–1

    What is mucus? What does it do, is it sticky? Slimy? What if you were to pour ink into water with a top layer of mucus, what would happen? Would the ink get mixed in with the water?
