Difference between Bacteria and Cyanobacteria?

Answer

There are some notable differences between bacteria and cyanobacteria. The main difference between the two is that bacteria needs to feed off of a host to survive while cyanobacteria prepares food for itself through photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is present in cyanobacteria, which makes the photosynthetic system possible. Chlorophyll absorbs light from the 400nm-670nm spectrum and the usable light provides food for the cyanobacteria. Accessory pigment is present in cyanobacteria because the color green is not absorbed for food, so it is reflected.
