My Mini Biological Experiment

Biology is normally not my forte, but ironically my longest-running experiment is biological. I've got a couple of old film cannisters, 2 clear and one black. One clear one has been filled with water for over 2 years, the other for a year, and the black one for a month. Starting with just water and whatever was in the 5mL of air, all three have formed small bacteria colonies. One of the clear ones has a whitish colony the size of a pencil eraser that once was green, the other has an orange colony that has faded somewhat recently, and the black one has a small whitish colony.
