    The bioactive set up is more health beneficial for the ants so the real question becomes what are you more concerned about?? Their health or how they look

    In Australia you don't get pretty much any exotic animals if they can survive in the wild our bio security is extremely strict to the point where I could bring an Australian native snake from the mainland to Tasmania

    For Germans if they don't like certain ants in certain areas they just try killing them off.

    Can you keep native ants in setups outdoors? I am very interested in keeping them but I dont want the risk of having them inside. I have a shaded porch so they wouldn't have to live in direct sunlight. If anyone has advice please reply.

    I like the simple set up for smaller colonies, if only because they make it easier on the keeper when they're starting out. But your bioactive terrariums are a big part of why I started watching. It's like seeing them in a more natural habitat, and seeing how they react to the environment and how the environment reacts to them.

    But if you ever decided to make it easier on yourself and move to simpler colonies, I'd be okay with that too. It's ant love all the same. Please do what suits you best.

    I think you should have a bunch of naturalistic out-worlds and formicariums connected by tubes to allow for many options and climates plus you'll have the ability to see them in different environments

    I find that half the fun of you channel is the kingdoms you create for the ants. So I think you should keep it like that.

  • MegasXaos

    I would love to see more underground! However, I think your belief that the environment should match what they would find in the wild is soothing and creates masterpieces. I'd love to see more of what goes on underground, but not at the expense of the beauty created above. I wish there were a live-stream of every colony that I could tune into an watch whenever. I could just watch the ants for hours.
    It'd be cool if you could somehow have a "doughnut" type enclosure that would allow you to get a camera underneath and in the middle to see more of what goes on underneath.

    I don't support keeping non local ants at home, cuz if u ever want to stop keeping the colony then u can't just let them go outside, it'll mess up the ecosystem and might damage the local colonies.

    Just wanted to say thank you, and I look forward to each video.
