Are you ready for another educational video? If your answer is yes! Then get ready to take a trip to the microscopic world and know everything about Zoogloea. It is a Biological term that almost nobody knows about but they are common in aquariums with natural plantings! The interesting thing about seeing these microorganisms under the magnifying glass is that there is clearly a morphological and physiological differentiation, they are all different and carry out crucial work within the aquatic system!πŸ‘¨β€πŸ«πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ“

Estas preparado para otro video educativo?, si tu respuesta es si!! entonces preparate para realizar un viaje al mundo microscopico y conocer todo sobre las Zoogloea es un termino Biologico del que casi nadie tiene conocimiento pero son comunes en acuario con plantado natural! lo interesante de ver estos microorganismos bajo la lupa es que claramente existe una diferenciacion morfologica y fisiologica, todos son diferentes y realizan un trabajo crucial dentro del sistema acuatico!πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

I am an expert in aquariums and recently I assembled a 100 liter aquarium with a natural planting, it is actually a little more advanced than a LOW TEC, and from knowledge and experience I know that when we make an aquarium assembly when placing the substrate a "slime" will appear white that will border all our trunks and plants, in reality this biological phenomenon happens because the water has a high level of nutrients and as a consequence these colonies of bacteria are formed!πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»πŸ§«
Soy experto en acuarofilia y recientemente monte un acuario de 100litros con un plantado natural, en realidad es un poco mas avanzado que un LOW TEC, y por conocimiento y experiencia se que cuando realizamos un montaje de acuario al colocar el sustrato aparecera una "baba" blanca que bordeara todos nuestros troncos y plantas, en realidad sucede este fenomeno Biologico porque el agua tiene un alto nivel de nutrientes y como consecuencia se forma esta colonias de bacterias!🐟🐠

Answering our question which is: (Zoogloea) well then we can define it as a biofilm or small layer that is formed in a certain space and that is composed of thousands of microorganisms in the form of colonies! it actually looks like bacilli or small, fine cylinders that clump together in large numbers!😲🧫
Respondiendo a nuestra interrogante que es: (Zoogloea) bien entonces podemos definirla como una biopelicula o pequeΓ±a capa que se forma en un determinado espacio y que esta compuesta por miles de microorganismos en forma de colonias! en realidad tiene aspecto en forma de bacilos o pequeΓ±os y finos cilindros que se agrupan en grandes cantidades!πŸ€“πŸ”¬πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

This is what a Zoogloea biofilm looks like out of water, it looks sticky and slimy, but when we take it to the microscope we see an amazing image composed of thousands of bacteria, the truth is that they are harmless in our aquarium and what they do is feed on the nutrients, too help break down ammonia! I always advise removing it little by little because it makes our aquarium look ugly!πŸ‘¨β€πŸ«πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ“
Asi luce una biopelicula de Zoogloea fuera del agua tiene un aspecto pegajoso y baboso, pero cuando la llevamos al microscopio vemos una imagen alucinante compuesta por miles de bacterias, la verdad son inofensivas en nuestro acuario y lo que hacen es alimentarse de los nutrientes, tambien ayudan a descomponer amonio! yo siempre aconsejo retirarla poco a poco porque da un aspecto feo a nuestro acuario!πŸ§«πŸ”¬πŸ§

Your Biological characteristics are classified by your breathing as "aerobic" what does this mean? that to carry out respiration and physiological function they must take the O2 from the medium, they are also classified as "gram-negative", that is, they do not stain blue when we put a staining compound such as methylene blue or lugol! In fact, in the teniΓ±a sample we will see that the branches or bacilli do not stain!πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’™
Sus caracteristicas Biologicas son clasificadas mediante su respiracion como "aerobicas" que quiere decir esto? que para realizar la respiracion y funcion fisiologica deben tomar el O2 del medio, tambien estan clasificadas como "gram-negativas" osea no se tiΓ±en de azul cuando le colocamos un compuesto de tincion como por ejemplo el azul de metileno o lugol! en realidad en la muestra teniΓ±a veremos que las ramificaciones o bacilos no se tiΓ±en!πŸ§ πŸ”¬

It is the first time that I see specimens of spirochetes, I think I have not seen some since college, and it is interesting because they only grow here in the zoogloea, which gives us an idea that it is a rich medium where specific organisms can grow! spirochetes are a perfect example of gram negative cells their cells are elongated similar to a "zig zag" of course we cannot close the post if we do not see the movements of the spirochetes enjoy my video!πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ§«
Es primera vez que veo ejemplares de espiroquetas, creo que no veia unos desde la universidad, y es interesante porque solo crecen aqui en la zoogloea, lo que nos da una idea que es un medio rico donde organismos especificos pueden crecer! las espiroquetas son un ejemplo perfecto de gram negativas sus celulas son alargadas parecido a un "zig zag" por supuesto no podemos cerrar el post si no vemos los movimientos de las espiroquetas disfruta de mi video!πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ“πŸ§¬πŸ§ͺ

Already here we can see the layer of colonies in a Zoogloea there are so many that it is not enough to differentiate but with a larger zoom we begin to see small details of the bacilli and other bacteria that join the colony, I read on the internet that the zoogloea is composed of "Zoogloeaceae" is how the "family" is classified taxonomically!πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»πŸ€“
Ya aqui podemos ver la capa de colonias en una Zoogloea son tantas que no da para diferenciar pero con un zoom mayor comenzamos a ver pequeΓ±os detalles de los bacilos y otras bacterias que se unen a la colonia, lei en internet que la zoogloea esta compuesta de "Zoogloeaceae" es asi como se les clasifica la "familia" taxonomicamente!🧠πŸ§ͺ🧬

what happens is that they appear to be in the form of branches but are linked with "extracellular polymers" in the form of fibrils! All the "slime" is a group of polysaccharides, it is very interesting to study them because they have the property of carrying out: "flocculation" of extracellular material or "the famous slime" the problem is that they are insoluble in water and that is why they cannot disintegrate in the Water!🧠πŸ§ͺπŸ”¬
lo que sucede es que parecen estar en forma de ramificaciones pero estan unidas con "polimeros extracelulares" en forma de fibrillas! toda la "baba" es una agrupacion de polisacaridos es muy interesante estudiarlas porque ellas tienen la propiedad de realizar: "floculacion" osea material extracelular o "la famosa baba" el problema es que son insolubles en agua y por eso no logran desintegrarse en el agua! πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ“πŸ§«πŸ’™

Do you know what caught my attention? that when looking for scientific works such as this: (Infante, 2011) "the extracellular matrix expelled by zoogloeas serve at the physical-chemical level as wastewater treatment, just like the manufacture of biodegradable plastic" it is very interesting to see how the author gives us a different approach and the various uses that these bacteria have in improving our environment! so it would be interesting to continue to carry out studies on them!πŸ˜²πŸ‘¨β€πŸ«
Saben que llamo mi atencion? que cuando busque trabajos cientificos como por ejemplo este: (infante,2011) "la matriz extracelular que expulsan las zoogloeas sirven a nivel fisico-quimico como tratadores de agua residuales, al igual que la fabricacion de plastico biodegradable" es muy interesante ver como el autor nos da un enfoque diferente y los diversos usos que tienen estas bacterias en la mejora de nuestro medio ambiente! por lo que seria interesante continuar a realizar estudios sobre ellas!πŸ€“πŸ§¬

Interesting. :) The name reminds me of neuroglia (glial cells in the brain), do you know if zooglea and neuroglia have anything in common or similar, or just a coincidence in the naming?

Hello friend, thanks for commenting, I think it is a coincidence, these bacteria are specific and only grow in these environments! But let's hope if another reader contributes something to your comment that is very interesting!
