My Pets Were Killed by a Green Monster

  • Published: 01 December 2018
  • A living, breathing green monster has completely taken over the mighty river within the Selva De Fuego, river jungle paludarium ant kingdom of the Fire Nation, our massive fire ant colony. It has taken lives of creatures living in the river and has even begun to kill the aquatic plants. What is this river monster? Today you will find out. Watch how I weaken and eventually kill it with the perfect team of green monster assassins.

              With the issues you've had it appears to me you need to oxygenate your water more possibly an air stone with an external air pump and a stronger inline pump for faster flow in your river

                            seriosly antibiotics? isnt that an overkill? look what the world has become, overprescribing antibiotics killing all river bacteria immunizing human bacteria meanwhile.... wouldnt clorinated tab water do the trick aswell?

                              I hate fire ants with all of my soul. I am deathly allergic to them. And a single bite is enough to make my throat swell and suffocate.

                              That being said the Fire Nation is my favorite to watch on this channel. Part of me wants them all to die. But another part of me is just hypnotized by the Selva De Fuego and all of the adventures.

                                                                                            Look in to freshwater limpet snails, they're amazing at keeping algea away ☺️
