unknown bacterium

for a couple of days i have been using some home made puddle water .Actually I wanted to collect a bit of pond water from my neighbour but i dont thing it would be a good idea since we’r all in quarantine.So i have gathered some puddle water from six different places of our backyard so that i could get a variety of microorganisms.It was really rainy that day and there were a lot of mosquitoes so i killed one and put it along with the puddle water along with a rotten leaf . After some time the mosquito started decaying . i saw some beautiful cilliates which were all moving very fast .When I first saw many organisms were quite familiar to me but at the same time it was very exciting to see them for real as before this I saw many of these only in text.

please tell what is this organism?anyone down in the comments

    That is quiet a find!! Wow – it reminds me of wallaby squares and square bacteria – see https://www.nature.com/news/2004/041011/full/news041011-3.html

    You might have something quiet special – please do try to grow it.
