Sudden death.

I have been keeping a culture of Physarum polycephalum for a while, I fed it oats, I kept its' container humid, I let it have fresh air, I gave it room temperature liquid water (Not tap water though.), I kept it in a dark place, & I never moved the container.I'm not sure what I did wrong, but it suddenly died, it evacuated water, letting out a brownish puddle of water & making parts of the cell dry out completely & turn black as if it was burned, it detached from the substrate,…See More

Hi Everyone,

I have started an experiment recently for the first time. today I have noticed two new things that I have no idea if it means my slimes are dying or what...

first, these black things... I do't know what they are?

Second, they are getting covered with something white... I don't understand what's happening... :(
