Does anoxic bacteria help or hurt plants?

Recommended Posts

On one hand anoxic bacteria removes no3 which would hurt plants but on the other hand they release co2 which would help plants. From watching the video on ocean aquarium they can't be much of a detriment but i wonder if anyone has played with anoxic bacteria and seen any effect on plant growth.

Here is a link to a previous CARE forum discussion that may lead to answers if not at least some food for thought. The more down the rabbithole I go with learning about anaerobic/anoxic activity the more I realize there is so much more to the “nitrogen cycle” than I previously understood. There are some really excellent YT resources related to this topic as well:
