Laboratory 2: Population Biology and Ecological Footprint Make a hypothesis about how you think the two species of Paramecium will grow alone and how they will grow when they are grown together. Each paramecium growing on its own will be able to grow and flourish because there is nothing stopping it or competing with it. It will be able to grow to its full capacity. When there are both parameciums growing together; one paramecium, the stronger of the two, is going to grow faster and larger than the other. This will cause the weaker of the tow to stop growing. As time goes on the stronger paramecium will eventually take over, and the weaker paramecium will disappear Explain how you tested your hypothesis. I filled on test tube with the Caudatum paramecium, another test tube with Aurelia paramecium, and the 3rd test tube contained both parameciums. Each test tube was tested every 2 days by using wet mount slides. On what day did the Paramecium caudatum population reach the carrying capacity of the
