IMHO, your first way was best. A good starter is better than taking your
chances with wild starts, I think.
Barring that, any old established aquarium probably has some invisible
*Euglena* species drifting in it.
Put some change water in a clear jug, on a sunlit window ledge. Add a
pinch of "Miracle Grow" and see what develops.

Why not? They should be easily wiped out by a little "Amquel" o/e.
I don't recall green water being slowed down by dechloraminators, but most primitive animals are killed dead by it.
