Aim: The present study was done to evaluate the effect of the dye basic fuchsin (BF) on soil mycobiota with an aim to mark out the fungal strains which might be able to remove triphenylmethane dyes from effluent by adsorption. Methodology: Pot experiments were conducted during the study and different concentration (500, 750 and 1000 ppm) of Basic fuschin dye were used on soil mycobiota. Soils treated with different concentration of the solution of basic fuchsin were screened for fungal

Results: A. flavus and A. niger could survive basic fuchsin treatment in the soil to a reasonable extent and their sizable populations were isolated from BF treated soil throughout the period of 90 days, even from the soil treated with as high as 1000 ppm concentration of the dye. Discussion: The genus Aspergillus and Aspergillus niger could survive in the higher concentration of dye. It can tolerate the 1000 ppm of Basic fuschin dye and it may be helpful to overcome water pollution by removing color contaminants from water bodies through biosorption.
