Wandering ecosystem

Insert two new species and create a stable ecosystem:
1st: Devo, Glue, Photo disabled
2nd: Glue, Phago, Photo disabled
3rd (bonus): Devo, Photo, Phago disabled

The main species can go extinct, but I doubt any plans would work out like that.

I never able to make 4/3 different organism live in a substrate for a long time :mrgreen:
This looks hard :D

What do you consider a stable eco system?
How many cells can be inserted?
How to distinguish 2 inserted species from each other? Just by color, or how different would they need to be from each other?
Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!

1st: Should survive for a decent while without dying out
2nd: 1 for each species
3rd: Different genome, they couldn't be the same in the first place as cell types are restricted for every species

Oh THAT's what 1, 2 and 3 means. Ok, got it. What's a decent amount of time? When creating a challenge you want to be as precise and specific as possible.

Enough for the "wow" effect, or let's say 300 hours, if that isn't too much

@humon - Alast meant that the time requirement and number of inserted cells allowed are things you should state in post with the challenge details.

This is a nice challenge. I've done 1 and 3 with basic solutions, but I had to think about for a moment longer than most Easy challenges in the app. Not a lot, but a bit. ;) Sort of refreshing in a way. I wonder if 1 could be made a bit more difficult: the solution I used is one that already completes an Easy in-app challenge.

Yes, the first is quite easy, but designing it in a specific way might assist the other two species.

If you manage to solve it, could you post it? I'd like to see your solutions myself :P

I have one solution that works but needs a bit of improvement to guarantee consistency: dumb Keratinocyte swimmer and smart predator.
