Large Ciliate (Frontonia?)

I discovered this large ciliate trapped in some detritus and struggling to get out; which, luckily, it did. I’m not absolutely sure, but this ciliate may be a large species of Frontonia.

Also, NEVER attempt to track any fast-moving organisms with your microscope. Not only is there the possibility of damaging your microscope, but it is also relatively impossible at high powers.
