Cultivating Cyanobacteria

Since last thuesday we got some samples of different cyanobacteria in the lab. Which are Syctonema, Nodularia, Anabaea, Calothrix, Plantothrix and Synechococcus. I will now try to extract some colonies and cultivate them.


Nodularia is found in salt water and needs nitrogen. So I used a NHCI 0.9 % solution and liquid fertilizer for tanks.
