Abstract : The growth of Aeromonas formicans was studied as a function of pH. Best growth was obtained at pH 7 to 8. Natural organic ash was found to be useful in controlling pH. Temperatures in the range 20-41 C(68-106 F) did not appreciably affect the growth of the organism. A continuous culture cell was operated at 0.1 mA/sq.cm and an anode potential of -0.20 V vs. SCE for 4 days. (Author)
