    Hello, Raju! The forked tail leds to believe it might be a gastrotricha individual. Let’s see what others think.

    The motion is very ciliate-like twisting as it moves along, but I could be wrong as the view is very fleeting and the shape very generic.

    Usually I don’t see gastrotrich twist and come out of plane like this one did – but the split tail is too typical of a gastrotrich. So I would venture to say it is indeed a species of gastrotrich.

    Here is a really fun gastrotrich (related to rotifers) foldscope video by Laks himself:
