Team Prometheus
Muscles for undulatory swimming, preferably with a flattened tail.
So similar to team Friendo?
Lets go with vertical undulation instead of lateral, just for variety.

Alright thats fine, in order for you to have muscles you'll need at least one bone/rigid structure to anchor them off of, since its only a very small adjustment then I can incorporate it into your vote however would you prefer the bone to be located internally or externally?

Pretty sure that's false, look at flatworms.

I'd go with internal though, as exoskeletons have limited joint options.

Develop enzymes that allow the breaking down of photosynthetic materials to seperate the chlorophyll from them to be secreted post-digestion, thus allowing for wider dietary variety.

I would also just like to say that I love the look of the Celfigura Loricatorum, it reminds me of some of the designs from disney's Atlantis.
And it also feels really alien.

Sexual reproduction. But not male female, since we can't move effectively, become hermaphroditic. When two individuals encounter each other they mate and both become pregnant, if there are no others of its kind available they are capable of fertilizing themselves.

While they have no true skeleton Flatworms have mesenchyme, a connective tissue made of cells and reinforced by collagen fibers that act as a type of skeleton, providing attachment points for muscles.

I think we just have different thresholds for "rigid" :P. Anyways, internal skeleton FTW.
