    Score!

    Are you able to tell us the species of bacteria or is that proprietary?

    Incognito - I'm assuming you mean in the One and Only Products. The reality is that I can't tell you the exact species of the ammonia and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria because they have not been categorized and described to the international standards required and then submitted to the necessary journal so that they can be given official species names which then have to be accepted by a special committee. There is a detailed procedure about how to go about this and it takes a lot of time and money to do.

    That's why we use terms like Nitrosomonas marina-like ammonia-oxidizing bacteria or Nitrospira-like nitrite-oxidizing bacteria. I hope you don't think I am trying to duck the question (especially the first one on the forum) but the bacteria don't have official species names.

    I can tell you what species they aren't. Can I ask why this is important?

    Thanks
