In reading the answers to this request I keep wondering what the
ORIGINAL problem is/was - the situation requiring the separation of
the two organisms in the mixture.  Could a method other than "picking
up a bacterium" be of use?

I'm not saying that that isn't the way to solve the problem for the
person making the request but I keep wondering if some selective medium
might be the answer to the problem of isolating a particular organism
that would appear to be in low proportion to the other members of the
group.  Knowing the names of the bacteria, if they are known, might help.
