My favorite videos are the ones in which you make unique setups for each ant species that looks like its own miniature world for the ants, in which it is very clear that careful thought is being put into maintaining interspecies mingling, plants and foliage, security, population regulation, and it's all done naturally. For me, personally, I love it when you go into detail about every little creature you add into your ants colonies, from frogs to fish to plants and so on. Learning about why these different things fit together in a miniature world is interesting to me. It's a crazy wild and interesting concept you don't see anywhere else. Perhaps if you were to do it, a way to go about it is to build it underneath the miniature world, as if it were an extension of the underground, so your ants could nest deep below the surface there and pop up to scavenge in the miniature world as an outworld.

Couldn't you have two colonies of one or more of the same species of ant. One setup where you can see inside the nest and the other setup just done as you normally keep them?

I think his reasoning for keeping non-native species was well thought out and very professional and also the reason he doesn't sell the more invasive species. Overall, the ant store was very awesome and impressive. My favorite ant keeper is still Mikey Bustos and #antscanada

I think that, if you live in areas probe to earthquakes/tornados/etc then you should only have native ants.

I'm baffled how poorly he speaks english, he looks not so old. For you non germans: english teaching in germany back then was actually pretty bad so despite the fact that everyone had english in school most of them can't form even easy coherent sentences. I think the millennials are the first generation who overall are fluent in english, but he looks like he is in his 30s and he runs a business which operates internationally, he should be able to speak English better. Especially the part starts at 14:36 make me cringe, it's not that hard dude please try harder to pronunciate the words correctly °~°

Hello antscanada! I just wanted to say thank you for inspiring me to keep and care for ants. I am 12 years old and have had a fascination with ants for my whole life, but until about half a year ago, keeping them was only a fantasy. Around that time, I first saw your channel and it opened my eyes to a new world. And since then, I have bought a hybrid nest gear pack and am now caring for 3 young, happy, healthy ant colonies. You have changed my life, and opened my eyes to a world I thought I would never see. You are an inspiration to everyone in the world to care for life, and appreciate its miracles and beauty. Thank you! Ant love forever! ❤️🐜❤️

I love these videos. Thank you for showcasing the lives of these amazing animals. Since some ants are photosensitive, I think it would be awesome to have a clear border for the underground that you could keep covered during the day, but open up when you wanted to see what they were doing in low-light conditions. I wish we could follow one ant in each colony throughout their day too.
