Micro-oxic soil incubation was conducted to form iron oxide-deposited microbial colonies, meaning enrichment of FeOB, on the soil surface . The paddy soil sample was preincubated under flooded and dark conditions in a glass beaker for 3 weeks at 25°C. Then the soil was incubated under anoxic conditions in a test tube (30 mm diameter and 200 mm long) with a sleeve stopper made from synthetic rubber. Because traces of O2 diffused slowly through the stopper (29.2 nmol cm-3 day-1), a microaerobic atmosphere could be established in the tubes. Iron oxide-deposited microbial colonies that formed after 3-4 weeks of incubation were subjected to the isolation of FeOB.
