Both co-cultivation and co-substrate addition strategies have exhibited massive potential in microalgae-based antibiotic bioremediation. In this study, glucose and sodium acetate were employed as co-substrate in the cultivation of microalgae-bacteria consortium for enhanced sulfadiazine (SDZ) and sulfamethoxazole (SMX) removal. Glucose demonstrated a two-fold increase in biomass production with a maximum specific growth rate of 0.63 ± 0.01 d−1 compared with sodium acetate. The supplementation of co-substrate enhanced the degradation of SDZ significantly up to 703 ± 18% for sodium acetate and 290 ± 22% for glucose, but had almost no effect on SMX. The activities of antioxidant enzymes, including peroxidase, superoxide dismutase and catalase decreased with co-substrate supplementation. Chlorophyll a was associated with protection against sulfonamides and chlorophyll b might contribute to SDZ degradation. The addition of co-substrates influenced bacterial community structure greatly. Glucose enhanced the relative abundance of Proteobacteria, while sodium acetate improved the relative abundance of Bacteroidetes significantly.
