    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?

      The titans didn't have the best polymorphism but the leafcutters do they have very small minim workers and the normal workers soldiers and supermajors

                                  Providing adequate amounts of soil to allow your Asian Marauder Ants to burrow deep into the ground is one of the many ways you have hopefully ensured a prosperous colony.

                                    Awesome videos but I had a question on the Lost Titans and their old tank did you ever find a queen for the crazy black ants that were in there
