    Can fire ants conquer water? Moving my massive fire ant colony into their new home, a 100 gallon South American biotope (all animals and plants from South America) paludarium (half land- half water) was an intense experience to witness! At the onset, it seemed the fire ants, a colony we call the Fire Nation, was having troubles dealing with the river we made in the setup, not to mention being completely chastised by the river's fish. Watch how the Fire Nation deals with their new life in the Selva de Fuego, and check out the surprises and twists that happen along the way. Hope you guys enjoy this week's episode!

    Also as mentioned in this video we had a short, interactive Youtube Live feeding this week of the Golden Empire (link here: ) that failed due to slow internet speeds. However, a huge special thanks to all the awesome AC Family, who sent Superchats in our previous live stream this week:

        Sadly.... It was interesting for a moment. Than reality hits the more intelligent crowd and we realize that this is an extremely overproduced video about bugs.

                          I'm ok if they don't survive, in fact id encourage the mass drowning of the entire colony.

                                  I wouldn't mind tuning into a 24/7 stream of this enclosure. It's just so calming, yet fascinating to watch.
