You might also check oolitic fungi, such as the two which comprise
Kombucha/Kambucha tea (along with two bacteria in a complex symbiosis).
I believe Paul Stamets wrote about these in an article in Mushroom, The
Journal of Wild Mushrooming 2-3 years ago.

The "mother" of Kombucha/Kambucha tends to float on the surface of the
cold tea, supported in part by gasses produced by the symbiosis.
