We use a fake or toy data set to permit discovery of the parameters in a two population protozoan model used to study paramecium and yeast competiton in the 1930's studies of G.~F.~Gause in the Soviet Union.

We offer artificial (toy) and historical data on limited growth population situations in the study of protozoa and lead students through several approaches to estimating parameters and determining the validity of the logistic model in these situations.
