      The only way that bacteria harm other bacteria is by the fact that they compete for nutrients and by the fact that each bacteria eliminates toxic wastes that limit the grouth of all the bacteria around, including itself. Actually they are 2 ways, lol. Another way, but not universally valid are antibiotics. Some bacteria produce antibiotics that kill other bacteria. Each species of bacteria has it’s own reaction to antibiotics. The genus that gives out the most antibiotics is streptomices.
      On the E.coli question, i am sure Patrick can answer

      I think you mean excrete wastes which inhibit growth of other bacteria 😀
