Paramecium-like eating

I don't know what I did. I tried to copy how paramecium eat but this is all I got. It can only avoid wall and needs a lot of energy. The food only stuck at the end of the last ciliocyte when the ciliocytes grow as big as the phagos
The phagos should split so the food can be eaten. I'll do that later,a bit busy.

Cool structure! Havent been able to make a hollow swimmer that is able to avoid something (oversaturated flagelos by signals make it stop moving). Perhaps a dish with "lumpier" food bits will be better. The even spread of food caused the organism to only spin in 1 direction

Well, there's no food stereocyte to begin with so maybe I'll put it in the middle where there's space available. And yeah, I'll try to the nutrient lumps.
