Evidence was obtained for the presence of sulfate-reducing bacteria Desulfovibrio sp. in pits of an epoxy-topcoated aluminum alloy 7178 tank, and in tubercles and pits in a similar tank coated with Buna N. The sulfate- reducing bacteria were found in tubercles in association with Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Cladosporium sp. This association of microorganisms in developing oxygen concentration cells is discussed.
