Almost the same bacteria. I *believe* FW bacteria are nitrosomonas and that SW bacteria are nitrosococcus. Similar but different. Someone actually already performed this test with commerical products and found it to be true. This may help slightly in your understanding.

Thanks Deveilishturtles.The answer to "is it different?" is in there...

From the link:
Most of the products tested using the saltwater formula claimed to be capable of working in both saltwater and freshwater, however marine species of Nitrobacter and Nitrosomonas differ from those that live in freshwater. Therefore it is believed that these products actually contained only the freshwater species, since they were able to convert ammonia to nitrate in the freshwater testing but failed to produce results when placed in a saltwater environment.
