Parts of the cycles though depend on CO though, which is almost completely depleted now.
They could make it if they evolve photosynthesis.

I had mentioned formamide and ammonia. How might they use those? There is also isocyanic acid and hydrogen cyanide.
They could likely use isocyanic acid and hydrogen cyanide as sources of energy, at least until they get depleted.

Ok, what new clades of microorganisms do you think might arise then?
There will probably be more organisms that make extensive use of reactions involving nitrogen-containing compounds.

Re: Let's create an alien biosphere!

I think this is a good time to create viruses. We could start with parasitism or the package method we talked about earlier, though to do that we would need to find a reason for organisms to mutually benefit from sharing genetic information. I think that it's better to wait to create viruses until ...

Let's use those then. From now on, if we're faced with a choice where we don't have much support for either side, let's choose the familiar one.
Okay. Now can we discuss the new variants?
