Name: Swallow Tube
Ancestry: Filter Tube -> Capture Tube -> Constricting Tube -> Swallow Tube
Creator: Jisaan
Genes Added: Porous Tubes x1, Filter Feeding x2
Genes Removed: Digestive Enzymes x1, Trigger Hairs x1
Genes: Filter Feeding x3, Horizontal Tubes x2, Stalks x1, Strong Stalks x1, Large Size x1, Spores x1, Constricting Tubes x1, Porous Tubes x1
Description: This offshoot of the Constricting Tube has abandoned its carnivorous diet in favor of an improved filtration feeding technique; it now constricts at the ends first to create a water tight seal, then moves inward to force the water through its porous body, where any spores are filtered out and consumed. If adaptations to the constriction muscles are needed, replace the additional filter feeding genes with them.

Name: Hazmat weed
Ancestry: Verdant Algae -> Aquaweed -> Babelweed -> Hazmat Weed
Creator: Jisaan
Genes Added: Herbicide Resistance x1, Nutritious Spores x1, Toxic Cleanser Shell Symbiosis x1
Total Genes: Photosynthesis x2, Green Color x1, Clumping Growth x1, Fast Reproduction x2, Lamina X1, Holdfast x1, Spores x1, Support Stipes x1, Air Bladder x1, Elongated Holdfast x1, Herbicide Resistance x1, Nutritious Spores x1
Description: An offshoot of the Babelweed that has adapted to survive in the newly toxic waters, it has developed a resistance to herbicide, and a symbiotic relationship with the Toxic Cleanser Shell simply by sacrificing some of its spores in exchange for an environment free of herbicide.

Symbiote:

Name: Toxic Cleanser Shell
Ancestry: Barbed Shell -> Cleanser Shell -> Toxic Cleanser Shell
Creator: Jisaan
Genes Added: Herbicide Scrubbing x 2, Hazmat Weed Symbiosis x1
Total Genes: Half Shell x1, Barbed Shell Spines x1, Water Funnel x1, Filtration Net Skin x1, Water Intake Channel x1, Budding Reproduction x1, Filtration Feeding x1, Herbicide Scrubbing x 2, Hazmat Weed Symbios x1
Description: This offshoot of the cleanser shell has developed a seemingly selfish adaptation to filter out herbicide from the water, but the reason for this becomes clear when they are found near the Hazmat Weed, which has developed more nutritious spores than are usually found, and as such it is within the shells bes interest to keep the plant alive and producing spores for as long as possible.

Not sure how Symbiosis works between two species, so if I don't need genes for it, add a Fast Reproduction to the weed and another Herbicide Filtering to the shell. Oh, and the shell is a species of its own, not just a symbiote... After all, if there are no plants left in the ocean, that removes a significant supply of its food. Wouldn't be to surprised if it evolved regardless.

Name: Parasitic Floating Caps
Ancestry: Gnarl Root -> Bulbed Caps -> Bulbed Floating Caps -> Parasitic Floating Caps
Creator: Jisaan
Genes Added: Budding Reproduction x1, Spined Roots x1, Parasitic Consumption x1
Total Genes: Fungal Consumption x1, Water Retention x2, Elongated Roots x2, Bulbous Growth x1, Hollow Cap x1, Constricting Roots x1, Photosynthesis x1, Budding Reproduction x1, Spined Roots x1, Parasitic Consumption x1, Spores x1
Description: Turning on its ancestors, this adaptation of the Bulbed Floating Cap has begun growing additional caps at the end of its roots, allowing them to float to the surface, constrict, pierce the skin of any neighboring fungus with their roots and then begin to feed off them. When the new bulb has developed roots of its own, it detaches from its parent, and repeats the cycle. Hopefully the current will carry it away before it begins to feed off or be fed on by its parent, but it is not unusual to see entire families feeding off each other in an elaborate cycle of nutrients. Fortunately photosynthesis helps to make up for any inefficiencies, and spores are also produced to allow greater dispersion.

Scratch the Parasitic Orken Root, the Desert fungi aren't a threat.
