    What a disaster! My ant farm setup experiment went awry! A massive leak caused a mass flood in the terrarium of my fire ants! Today we help rectify the errors of our biological experiment involving plumbing, shrimps, and a school of guppies that disappeared. We learned an important lesson in the process.This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    AC Family, thanks for watching this week's ant video! Man, I didn't think I would have been able to complete this week's video, because I was so unsure how to fix the problems! Hope you guys can LIKE, COMMENT, SHARE, & SUBSCRIBE (hit the bell, too!) if you guys enjoyed this week's Selva de Fuego's race to recovery! Hope you enjoy this episode, guys! Ant love forever! What suggestions do you have for improving this setup? Perhaps adding another creature/water beast?

              I think that when the pegnant fat big shrimp went through the toob it got cloged there for the flood, and why the eggs of some did'nt happen because thay got chrushed also the death of the gupppy gang because no bubbled water means thay slowly run out of air.

                                      I hate fire ants. I stepped on a nest and got bit up by them. However, you make ant keeping real interesting. I actually subscribed.

                                            I can't help but wonder If/when humans will be the ants and ai will be the ones studying us. Unlikely but some of ai creators are playing with evil. Interact with humans. They need a hug or maybe a quick handy possibly. All this awesome ant action really gets me jazzed ants have surely been studied to improve engineering, mining, military/combat, sociology etc. Very interesting thanks AC

I want something like this in my home but I work full time, and sometimes a lot of overtime as well so I'm not home too much to care for it properly. I shall settle for watching the amazing videos on it here. It's very fascinating.

                                                              You should add some aquatic African dwarf frogs

                                                                Instead of guppies for corpse patrol, which didn't work, perhaps good good choice would be killifish or even wild better? Both would be fantastic, due to their predatory nature. Killifish from the genus Aplocheilus are long lived colorful species with voracious appetites for small insects. They also should be readily available.

You need to get a low suction or sponge filter if you want them to survive. Also, you need to quarantine egg females because she will very likely eat the babies after they're born. Also, large shrimp are an absolute no in housing with long finned fish, because they'll just clip the fins of the fish as they swim by.

I also dont think the glass shrimp took out any of the healthy guppies. Only the dead and dying are taken by these types. Or at least the ones you could find in the middle of america.
