The limp silip split from its ancestor when a storm in Soma Tropical Sea forced water up the Always River and into the Always Swamp, carrying its microscopic ancestor with it. The limp silip remained in the Always Swamp as it could not survive the moving water of the Always River and also lost its lithovoric ability. The limp silip is now a strictly photosynthetic species. Since the limp silip no longer uses silica it no longer has skeletal like structure within its membrane and has instead become a limp (thus its name), organism that floats on top of the swamp. Sometimes this species can be found in large groups giving the surface of the water a purple-slimey look. Its reproduction is the same as it ancestor with the spores being produced in the middle of the body before detaching and floating in the water.
