Description

From floating algal mat inoculated into soil water media for 3 weeks indoors under constant lighting. Photos of three different individuals which I expect are all the same species.

From floating algal mat kept along shore of artificial lake kept indoors in a plastic bag for one year under continuous lighting.

Multiple individuals, possibly of different species but all found on the same microscope slide.

From floating algae mat sample kept sealed indoors under continuous lighting for one year. Scraping from side of the plastic bag.

Photos of different individuals found on same slide. Possibly multiple species, but I think they are at least all the same genus.

Description

Scraped from side of plastic bag sealed for one year and stored under constant lighting. Originally from floating algal mat along shore of an artificial freshwater lake.

False branching. I think the older parts are golden-brown with thick colored sheaths, and the newer parts are green with a smaller sheath. But it is possible there are multiple species in these photos.

Description

Seemed like the trailing flagellum was longer than the leading flagellum, but it is hard to be certain.

One of the flagella later got wrapped up around the cell and apparently stuck there, causing the cell to be unable to move.

Only noticed 1 flagellum, but cannot rule out a very small second one.

Description

From soil-water-lettuce media inoculated with mucky water and stored in a tube horizontally under constant light at ambient indoor temperature with cap screwed on tight. Smelled bad when opening it, probably low oxygen.

Photos of 2 different individuals which should have a decent chance of being clones due to the small volume of inoculum.

From soil-water-lettuce media inoculated with mucky water. Media not fully sterilized and not prepared aseptically so impossible to say where these originated from, but they stood out from the rest of the bacteria enough for me to want to post them as an observation.

Description

The only not obviously dead eukaryote I saw in some soil-water-vegetable media inoculated with mucky water from a wetland a week ago. These were also seen when examining the original sample.

No cyanobacteria seen either. Guessing there was a mismatch with salinity or pH or that not enough bacteria had grown to feed the heterotrophs at time of inoculation.
