An "OBLIGATE FERMENTER" would mean that it can ONLY survive in the ABSENCE of oxygen ...
This organism would dominate the culture grown anaerobically
The bacteria that has facultative respiration means that it can survive with or without oxygen but it does better ibn the presence of oxygen....
So if bacteria A is your OBLIGATE FERMENTER
And bacteria B is your faculatative respiration organism
Then AEROBICALLY the culture favors B
Anerobically favors A
