    Fire ants are so unpreditcable! A major catastrophe happened within the Selva de Fuego, our South American biotope paludarium, home to our massive colony of fire ants and aquatic creatures. A decision and action by the Fire Nation Ant necessitated me to make a major installment to their home. Watch as I build an incredible waterfall and whirlpool to solve our issues! Ant love forever!

                                  An idea for next time could be to make a flood up next to the ants, that is closed of from the rest of the water.

                                  You could see the ants cementery and be able to remove them easier that way.

                                  Prepare 2 pieces of plexi glass, and make in into a L shaped like form, then lower the water level with 4-5 cm, and then you can attach the L shaped on the outer edge of the Ant area, all the way around their area. When all dried up, you can put some water back in the tank, and add some water in the secondary flood that you just made. If shield off from the rest of the water, there would not be any worries about bad water, but if the flow is shared, it might leave some ants for the fish.

                                        You have great videos! I love your ecosystems! I'm curious why you didn't use water as a barrier and suberge the inlet hole for the electric cords. Also, I think it would be really cool if you added a bell siphon to one of your ecosystems.

                                          I'm currently binging all your videos and hopefully somewhere along the way I run into one that explains how you ensured the water went around in a circle!

                                            Does anyone know what happened to the fish from La Selva de Fuego (guppies, Romeo and Juliet's fry etc). I can't seem to find any more info past the whirlpool video!

                                                          Solution: get a turkey baster (that hasn’t been used for food, and will not be used for food) and suck up the dead ants. Obviously you can’t get every single one of them, but it can help get out a large portion of them, and keep the problem from spiraling if you do it regularly.
