Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) was used to analyse the community composition of a sequencing batch reactor (SBR) operating with aerobic-anaerobic cycling and fed acetate as its sole carbon source. Phosphorus was removed from the SBR microbiologically. Marked shifts in the community structure occurred as the phosphorus/carbon (P/C) ratio in the feed was changed. When the P/C ratio was shifted from 1:10 to 1:50, FISH analysis showed that the percentage of beta-Proteobacteria fell from… CONTINUE READING
