OK here is some more very interesting information.
Based on this information I would be very embarassed to have my name on the article that started this thread.
The thermal vents are putting off a tremendous amount of heat. I would strongly suggest googling the below article.
Thermophilic Sulfate Reduction in Hydrothermal Sediment of
Lake Tanganyika, East Africa
Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris 6,1 and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique,2 Station Biologique de
Roscoff, F-29682 Roscoff; France; Centre de Recherche en Sciences Naturelles, Station d’Uvira, Uvira, Zaire3;
and Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, D-2800 Bremen 33, Germany4
Received 21 October 1993/Accepted 18 February 1994

I just discovered this article that could possibly shed some light on this issue.
I know I’m no PHD but it makes one curious.

The Max Plank Institute is a pretty respected organization so it’s not like I’m speaking out of my ear.
I googled: Hydrothermal vents in Lake Tanganyika, East African Rift system Pflumio, Catherine, Castro, Maryse, Boulegue, Jacques, Gente, Pascal, et al. Geology. Boulder: Jun 1993. Vol. 21, Iss. 6; pg. 499
And I came up with the above article from the Applied and Environmental Microbilogy journal.
