This study aimed to morphologically identify the highest possible microalgae biodiversity in a sample collected from the River Nile using the culture-based method. Water samples were cultured on the two commonly used media BG-11 and BBM media to obtain a broad spectrum of microalgae biodiversity. Likewise, the effects of nutrients concentration and vitamin supplements to BG-11 and BBM for supporting the maximum diversity of culturable microalgae were tested.
