    Fire ants, Asian Bullet Ants, Carpenter Ants, Yellow Crazy Ants, Black Crazy Ants, Weaver Ants, and more! I've owned many ant colonies in my life, but this week I believe to have created my favourite ant farm of all time! In this episode, we welcome back the Titans (Asian Marauder ants, a.k.a Carebara diversa), and move them in to a new castle-themed ant farm. Beyond the aesthetics of this new habitat, I also made sure to learn from my mistakes in the past! This ant colony will surprise you! Hope you enjoy this week's ant video! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    Sorry for the late video, AC Family! This one took a lot longer to make than I expected, but it is now one of my favourite videos! Hope you guys like it, too! Also this video was just uploaded so sorry if the video appears low quality for the first little bit. This will change as Youtube processes the video. Ant love forever and thanks for your patience, AC Family! Do you guys like this NEW Titans colony?

      In India.. I used to play with these ants in my home .. they were living somewhere in my home like the other ants.. this artificial ant colonies make me both laugh and feel bad for these ants.

                The Garden of Eden terrarium came with a snake that lead to the downfall of the ant colony? That's way too perfect.

                                                          I saw you had some cotton stuffed in the holes drilled. You ever though of using threaded bulkheads with a male threaded barbed fitting threaded into the bulkhead and sliding your hose onto one? They also make reducer barbed fittings for transitions, like your box to your new hose. Might make your life a little easier so nobody escapes :)
