Chemotrophic bacteria, getting its energy by oxidizing dissolved iron
This slimy, red stuff is incredibly fascinating: rather than metabolizing sunlight, like most autotrophs, it lives in the transition zone where water, de-oxygenated by microorganisms feeding on the organic-rich swamp beneath, meets the air. The bacteria combines the oxygen with the iron, keeping the electron released by the oxidation process as its energy supply. Soooper cool! Other iron-oxidizing bacteria form the base of the food chain at geothermal vents on the deep ocean floor where there is no sunlight. If you introduce carbon, you can run the cycle backward. Watch this video for a completely mind-blowing demonstration.
