OMG! This ABOMINABLE thing beats "Sterilization" with SHOCKINGLY FLAWLESS results! Red Swimmers HATE it!

Hello, everyone! You may be wondering how that mess right there came to be. Well, let me shed some light on your query.
See that organism. It is known as "Saturation Sterilizer". It's an organism designed to beat the "Sterilization" challenge with a 100% success rate! The one on the left is the main organism, and the organism on the right is a "subspawner". The off-white devorocytes on the main organism produce the subspawners. The off-green keratinocyte spawns single devorocytes that become simple swimmers that produce additional devorocyte eggs. The swimmers cannot sustain themselves long enough alone, which is why the spawner and sub-spawner are very powerful churning up more swimmers.
The initial cell is placed.
It immediately divides into a "photocyte and a buoyocyte" pair in order to keep lit.
The photocyte splits into a keratinocyte and another photocyte that immediately splits again into the two photocytes seen here.
The photocytes produce additional buoyocytes that have priority in order to split into...
...wait for it...
...this. It's too heavy to float, but the photocytes generate enough chemical energy to...
...allow a few more buoyocytes to form and bring the organism back up!
The off-green keratinocyte is spawning by now. Any red swimmers that venture close to the devorocytes expedite the spawning of large keratinocytes that quickly become photo-buoy-keratin units that grow into subspawners.
Since the goal is to clean the plate, the main organism does not self-replicate; it only produces simple swimmer devorocytes and the subspawners. The subspawners only spawn the devorocytes. As a result, the main organism eventually dies out, preventing more subspawners from forming. The subspawners die out, and then only the swimmers are left. The swimmers are tweaked so that they don't self-sustain their population, and the plate is left spotless (unless you consider the nutrient specks to be spots )
The main organism is so effective, it spawns so many subspawners that they end up pushing it downward. The subspawners dropping devorocytes to "feed" the main organism isn't helping, either.
Very quickly, this organism goes from a single cell to almost 600 in a short time, smothering the red cells into submission.
In conclusion, I have designed the ultimate sterilization organism. I have tweaked it very carefully to ensure it has a 100% flawless success rate in completing the "Sterilization" challenge. As long as the initial cell is close enough to the light in order to divide the photocyte attached to the buoyocyte, a victory is certain.
