    Our fire ants, yellow crazy ants, and black crazy ants have never experienced living with aquatic companions like these! In this video our young Polyrhachis semiinermis ant colony (Lesser weaver ants) are under threat of attack from wild pharaoh ants who are looking to invade our new ant island named "El Dragon" situated in our brand new paludarium. In this episode we choose a guardian beast to unleash into El Dragon's waters, as well as go over what steps are needed in order to make sure our new El Dragon guardians are able to survive! This is an info-packed and intense episode with an unexpected, twist ending that will blow you away!

                                  I have a problem, I want an ant terrarium in Finland, but the ants here need to hibernate and I can't fit a 100 litre terrarium in the fridge. I also cannot order ants from a warmer climate country since its apparently illegal, so what do I do?! Please respond if you see this comment...

                                                They bacteria first turn Ammonia (present in the water) to nitrite and then to nitrate which is safer than the above chemicals . This helps to keep the fish alive in an aquarium.
