Using Wild Yeast and my Equipment

I apologize if this has been asked before but I couldn't find an answer on my own.

I have captured and cultivated some wild yeast and I need to use it before it goes bad. My problem is the fermenter I set aside for this project already has a wild yeast beer fermenting in it.

If I use one of my regular fermenters (plastic big mouth bubbler) with this other wild yeast, will it contaminate it to where I can only use it for wild yeast beers or is that strictly just when using Bugs to create a sour beer?

Thanks for the help
