freezer burn

good morning.
this is an interesting question.

does anyone know if aerobic nitrifying bacteria can be frozen and saved for later?
if i took a biowheel and froze it in a zip lock would the bacteria survive?

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

I would tend to belive they would all die. Do you have a sump, if so just throw the bio wheel in there when you're not using it to keep all the bacteria alive.

Well I know you can not freeze BIO-spira marine, nitrifying bacteria in a bottle. According to the FAQs on their website;

Q: I accidentally froze my BIO-Spira®; will it still work?

A: No. Unfortunately, BIO-Spira® contains living bacteria and freezing for any period of time renders BIO-Spira® innefective.
