What are Purple Non Sulfur Bacteria?
Purple non-sulfur bacteria (PNSB) are a group of photosynthetic bacteria that belong to the Proteobacteria phylum. These bacteria play a crucial role in biogeochemical cycles by participating in carbon and nitrogen fixation processes. The emergence of photosynthetic bacteria, including PNSB, is believed to have occurred approximately 3.5 to 3.8 billion years ago. These early photosynthetic organisms played a crucial role in shaping Earth’s atmosphere by releasing oxygen as a byproduct of their metabolic processes
What does Purple Non Sulfur Bacteria Do?
Purple Non-Sulfur Bacteria are ecologically important microorganisms that contribute to nutrient cycling, energy flow, and environmental remediation. Their diverse metabolic capabilities and adaptations allow them to occupy various ecological niches, making them valuable components of microbial communities.
Photosynthesis: PNSB are capable of anoxygenic photosynthesis, which means they can convert light energy into chemical energy without producing oxygen as a byproduct. This photosynthetic capability allows them to thrive in environments with low oxygen levels.
Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling: PNSB contribute to the cycling of carbon and nitrogen in ecosystems. They can assimilate and fix carbon dioxide from the environment, incorporating it into organic compounds
Environmental Adaptation: PNSB are known for their adaptability to diverse habitats. Purple Non-Sulfur Bacteria are highly adaptable organisms, thriving in a wide range of aquarium conditions. Whether you have a freshwater or a marine aquarium, these bacteria can adjust to varying salinity levels and pH ranges, making them suitable for diverse setups. Additionally, their hardy nature ensures their longevity.
Bioremediation: They can degrade and detoxify organic pollutants, such as hydrocarbons and aromatic compounds, through their metabolic activities. This makes them valuable in cleaning up contaminated environments and mitigating the impact of pollutants.
How does Purple Non Sulfur Bacteria Help in Aquarium
Nitrogen Cycling: PNSB play a crucial role in the nitrogen cycle of aquariums. They convert toxic ammonia (produced by fish waste and decaying matter) into nitrites and then into less harmful nitrates through their metabolic activities. This helps maintain healthy nitrogen levels and prevents ammonia and nitrite spikes, which can be harmful to fish and other aquatic inhabitants.
Organic Waste Breakdown: PNSB are effective at breaking down organic compounds present in aquariums, including uneaten food, fish waste, and decaying plant matter, which helps to resolve water quality issues and unsightly conditions.
Water Clarity: The presence of PNSB in an aquarium can contribute to improved water clarity. As they break down organic matter and consume excess nutrients, such as phosphates, they help reduce the growth of algae and promote clearer water, which helps provide a healthier environment for fish and other inhabitants.
Biological Filtration: Purple non-sulfur bacteria act as beneficial microbes that establish a biological filtration system in the aquarium. They create a stable and self-regulating ecosystem by converting harmful compounds and promoting a balanced nitrogen cycle..
Reducing Maintenance: By introducing PNSB into the aquarium, the beneficial bacteria population can be enhanced. This leads to a more efficient breakdown of waste and nutrients, resulting in a reduced need for frequent water changes and maintenance. It can help establish a more stable and low-maintenance aquatic environment.
Inhibits Pathogenic Bacteria Population: Rhodovulum Sulfidophilum of Rhodovulum strains are known to release Proteolytic Enzymes Which inhibits growth of pathogenic bacteria like vibrio cyano velvet etc.
