In order to obtain a high-performance bacterial decolorization, Malachite Green (commonly used triphenylmethane dye
) was chosen for the screening of dye degrading bacteria.

Malachite green (MG), which is one of the triphenylmethane dyes
, is widely used in aquaculture to prevent fungal infections and kill parasites due to its low price.

Azo and triphenylmethane dyes
are primarily produced and used in the textile industry and cause pollution if not properly treated before discharge to the environment [3, 4].
