Amoebas eat by wrapping their bodies around their food and chlamydomonas eat by photosynthesis.

I think this is what your asking for; 1. What is Chlamydomonas? Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a unicellular green alga. Chlamydomonas swims with two flagella, and has chloroplasts for photosynthesis. Chlamydomonas has nothing to do with Chlamydia, by the way. Source: http://www.yale.edu/rosenbaum/green_yeast.html

An amoeba is a shapeless blob of ''jelly'' that engulfs random objects on its way to know where in particular. Amoeba move by using their pseudopodium which is a "false leg." Amoeba can be harmful or helpful to man-kind and other living things. Amoebas are composed of just one cell. They are protozoans with no fixed shape. Most have no hard parts and look like blobs of jelly. However, some amoebas do build shells. Amoebas move by making part of its body move in the direction it wants to travel. Then slowly the rest of the cell follows. In order to eat an Amoeba flows around other microorganisms and then engulfs them. To reproduce the Amoeba splits itself into two cells.

They do have their differences, such as Amoeba digest bacteria, and that they reproduce differently and that bacteria doesn't have a nucleus, but amoeba do. But they are similar in the way that they are both unicellular.
