The bottom images look like an Asterococcus species.
Very nice clean, clear image; you can see a gelatinous sheath on the outside.

Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr

It looks like the two top photos might be Oocystis. The others could be also looking at a different plane.
