DJ the correct technical term is apparently prokaryotes which includes both the Bacteria and Archaea domains.

:) I can see us eventually getting people to say organisms instead of bacteria, but prokaryotes may be a stretch.

I prefer beneficial microbes, just to be clear that we are talking about tiny critters, technically speaking.

That is way too vague and general. It's just going to confuse. What are you referring to, plants? Algae? Fungi? Nematodes? Arachnids? Shrimp? Fish?

I agree.
We are talking about something that is so small we can not see it with our own eyes. At least that part is accurate.
Though specifically which ones we do not necessarily know. May very well be completely different species, in different tanks.
