A short overview of the formation methods of the biofilm with high exoelectrogens activity, which includes alternate partial and complete changes of culture medium, was done in the article. The influence of adaptation processes on electric current generation during the exoelectrogens biofilm formation was analyzed. The article also describes the reasons of sharp current variation, which appeared after nutrient medium changes
