I Created a Pineapple Beach Vivarium for Ants | Super Relaxing Video

  • Published: 30 November 2019
  • I created one of the most unique and exotic tanks I've ever made in my life for my beloved trap-jaw ant colony (Odontomachus simillimus) called the Jawbreakers. Join me as we explore the new world we created for my trap-jaw ants, as well as those of our other ant colonies in my Ant Room (the 'Antiverse'). Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #TrapjawAnts #Pineapple #Beach

                      Crested Geckos do well in tropical environments and eat roaches and crickets, i’m not sure how they would interact with a colony of ants and a couple crabs but just maybe... a new dragon could enter the anteverse.

                            I personally think it's lacking arboreal creatures with all the new plants... it has plenty of aquatic lifewith the shrimp, fish, plus terrestrial with the trap jaws and crabs but arboreal seems unfulfilled biome opportunity

                                Looks like the light you used for the tank was blocked out from the side where you had the moss

So that thought gave me a little chuckle. I just thought to bring it up
