The Greatest Vivarium I Ever Made (Ecosystem with Multiple Creatures)

  • Published: 02 November 2019
  • My Black Crazy Ants (the "Dark Knights"), one of the best ant colonies I've ever owned and OGs of this channel, need a new home. I had an epic plan for their new housing, which will involved the installment of various plants, other creatures, and bioactive soils. We also add a new team of aquatic creatures into the waters of Skull Island, home of our new ghost ant colony, and notice something odd about our Surinam horned frog, before attempting to feed it a baby mouse.

    It's another epic week of nature discovery in the Antiverse! Hope you guys enjoy this Team Trees episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #BlackCrazyAnts #PacmanFrog #GhostAnts

      Mikey I hope you kept some of the T' slings to find out what species they are. There are different colorful species, expecially Philippine Tangerine(Orphnaecus Philippinus). That's just as exciting wouldn't it? And local too! fits right into your codes!

          Love the editing of your videos mikey but tbh I'm not a fan of the multi topic shooting style you've been doing lately... it seems outta place going back and forth between creatures it was nice and simple when you did one creature per video.... not like 2 videos into one lol keep it up though

                                                    Phantom is cool, but I think it’s too commonplace for such an amazing species of ant.

If we do, beneficial bacteria can build up and turn the ammonia into nitrite, which is still toxic to fish. Then, another set of beneficial bacteria turns the nitrite into nitrate, which is less toxic to fish and can be removed by filtration and regular water changes.
