Alkatodes now form a taxonomical union that's separate from algae/fungi organisms. They are now extinct and their descendants are already a rare, niche-like taxon. The both ends of alkatodes were somewhat identical, but one end had only two protrusions whiles the other one has three. They also had a visible DNA strand in the middle of their body. About four of the end protrusions were partially covered by scales. A significant alkatode trait was their trait of surviving and prefering to live inside hydroxide dominated alkaline liquids. It is thought that their existing adaptations were caused through interactions and competition with earlier, more sturdier microorganisms. When alkatodes weren't able to acquaire food particles in their liquid they try to migrate towards less alkaline solutions to attack smaller microorganisms and absorb food from them then retreat into their alkaline territories to avoid being followed. As a means for transporting from an alkaline to a neutral liquid, alkatodes were able to survive moving a short period of time outside the liquids. Due to their body shape, alkatode found it hard to make their outer body to transform into petrifying bubbles so it's outer layer sacrificed itself, becoming a living cocoon for the bubbles it's inside has turned into. Then the cocoon travelled further, planting the bubbles gradually through gradually torn gaps in it's outer layer.
Inheritable traits: Elongated body, multiple protrusions, visible DNA strand, scales, resistance to alkaline liquids, temporary ability to be active outside liquid, cocoon protecting bubble offspring.
