Left water sample in a plastic bag indoors with just electric room lighting for over a week, and then put some on a slide and forgot about it for a few days. When I looked at it again, there was still a pocket of water under the coverslip with a few things like this alive in it.

Gif 20x speed.

Found in a jar filled with soil that I have kept indoors under continuous lighting while also occasionally dumping water I collect from rivers, ponds, and puddles into it. I let it dry up for a few months and then watered it with tap water for awhile and it quickly developed a green film, so I decided to take a peek at it with my microscope.

The nematodes on my slide varied in size but appeared to be of the same kind (at least to me). The higher magnification photo is of a different individual than the other photos.

Description

Difficult to tell whether these little green round algae are all the same species or not, so I uploaded a lot of them into separate observations. Even the ones that are grouped quite possibly have multiple species lumped together (will fix if this is pointed out).

This one growing on a tree is quite a bit different looking than the one I found growing on humus not too far away, which appears more like what I consider to be typical for this species. Maybe it's because of the epiphytic habitat?

Found while looking at the moss Rhytidiadelphus triquestris growing on a tree trunk. But I cannot rule out contamination.

The thick dark angled lines are neat. It's as if someone used a pencil to trace over a watercolor painting of a tardigrade instead of it being a micrograph.
