Isolate it if your heart's set on keeping it. Chances are that it won't colonize, but if it does I wouldn't put it in the terrarium. Just trash it...it'll save you alot of trouble in the long run.

To see what it is, look here.

If it is a contam, I'd get the culture that you removed it from and dispose of it, don't risk the rest of your cultures.

If you opened a jar that was still colonizing to remove the contam, you could have introduced more contams to the jar. Afoaf would say to at least isolate the jar from the others and observe.

This is called black mold and is either one of these strains - Alternaria, Aspergillus, or Doratomyces stemonitis, but since I can't be there to look at it I don't know which one.
Toss the cake, you opened the container and probably did more harm than good.

Wham bam kick yo ass contam. Mold doesn't even dare to enter my shit because I have the remedy
