I said random because that’s what i would be doing. Random pubmed searches for a bacterium based on the terms ‘bacteria’ ‘consume’ ‘Dinoflagellates’ ‘waste water’Random?
If bacteria and waste water treatment is a key component in your day to day career, wouldn't it be prudent to know all aspects of what processes every component does? I would tend to think so.
If you're disagreeing with me based on a personal opinion or personal feeling towards me, great. Please identify your distaste of me; not the science behind the regimen.
You see how that can be construed as ‘random’, right?
Since YOU have inside knowledge regarding YOUR experience in waste water treatment, and YOU KNOW the strain you are referring to- no, I don’t think that the info you are providing is random. But without the strain name, I can’t find any eveidence that what you are saying has any basis in scientific fact, because I can’t read the papers.
I have no issue with you. I don’t even know you. I was simply asking for references to the ‘fact’ of a ‘bacterial strain that aggressively eats dinoflagellates’. As a 24 year medical microbiologist, I’ve yet to encounter a bacterial strain that directly consumes protists.
I’m willing and ready to learn, but without a starting point, I can’t do the research.
Also- you have this incredibly apropos information that would greatly benefit everyone reading the thread, yet seem unwilling to share it. I can’t parse that.
And frankly- I’ve yet to a see any science behind the regimen, since there are no scientific articles detailing research done that follows core scientific principles.
Here, in this forum, let’s not pretend we are doing science. If we want to do that, then let’s treat it like science. Let’s identify the most qualified people based on their scientific training, do controlled experiments, publish and debate it. Have discourse.
Not get super defensive and think someone has a beef with you two posts into a series of questions regarding the validity of a statement that was made.
I mean you no disrespect, I seriously don’t. But these threads have a tendency to drive their own baseless narrative that can cause damage. There are several key posts above detailing why this protocol may be a bas idea, and people are still just throwing bacteria and vodka into their tanks without really understanding the biology of it. I think it is a responsibility of people with specific knowledge that They share that knowledge to the group and help everyone benefit. That’s includes calling out statements tjat they feel are inaccurate or wrong, or don’t pertain to our closed environments.
