As i was watching this i just got an idea: Imagine if zoos or something had a place with just one giant vivarium where you get to see the tiny ecosystem within. We are really missing out on an interesting opportunity to teach people how stuff like this works while also providing great entertainment.

Thank you SO much for editing this together for us…it was a beautiful Solstice gift. I loved that hammerhead worm. As I watched the entire process of this vivarium, it set the bar for all others, and still stands as a testament to the indomitable will of life and diversity. I still love your temperate one every bit as much, and tracing the food chains of predator and prey. Both have been monumental projects, and I have been spellbound all the way. I wish you the best of health, joy, and success in the coming year. You are a ray of sunshine.🥂🖤🇨🇦

When I was 14 I transformed a broken aquarium to a vivarium with variety of hunter spiders and it was amazing to observe how they hunt.

What an awesome video! I'm sure you have gotten some answers already, but termites will use the protein in chicken/other meats for egg production. So it is believable they will eat meat. The fungus in their nest is interesting as well. Trap jaw ants in a period of scarity have been observed to farm springtails (AntsCanada documented this), despite them not being a species known to farm. So it is believable that these termites can farm too, even if they are not known to do it. Love the video! I am halfway through.

If you continue making these could you please show more often the whole or at least bigger parts of the vivarium? The close-ups are really interesting but you can't really imagine the whole ecosystem if you only show close-ups D: the first time you did that was at 6:16 and it was also the first time you could see the actual composition of the vivarium. A bit late if you ask me and shots like that could definitely occur more often and longer :O

Thank you so much for this video. I remember when you first set this vivarium up. I was utterly fascinated, and I’ve always returned to watch when you upload. This vivarium has served as a massive inspiration to me over the years. I even managed to create a similar setup for a while, though that one didn’t last as long as I had to redo the tank for my new pet snake. But these videos have taught me the beauty of biodiversity, and I always do my best to encourage it in my vivariums. It also grew my love for ant keeping, which has been a part of my life for years now. Thank you so much for showing the process of this ecosystem.

I love your videos and the vivarium! The only suggestion I have is that you should show more shots of the whole vivarium that way we get a sense of scale. The close-up shots are cool and all but I think more shots of the whole vivarium would help emphasize and show that everything is self-contained in this awesome little world you built. Only close-up shots just makes it feel like another nature documentary :-)
Where do you find a tank that big? I don't think I'll ever have enough room for it, but I'm still pretty curious.

Great video! I've seen long before a documentary about salmon, and it said that salmon is the base of the biodiversity in the rivers where they swin. A lot of animals wait for them to arrive from the sea, for meal and for fertilization of the soil. Maybe that's the reason why it was prefered by almost all creatures.

I went on a month long road trip one time and asked a friend if he could take care of my fish while I was gone. I had a decent size tank with more than a few different kind of fish in there. Shortly after I left, the person meant to watch the tank would get themselves arrested and go to jail, unbeknownst to me. This was before cell phones, so he couldn't contact me to let me know. I end up being gone over a month. The fish tank became an every fish for itself deathmatch, with the losers being eaten by it's hungry opponent. When I came back I surprisingly found only one surviving fish left. It was eating one of its own kind. It was a kissing fish. It would seem that of all the fish, two kissing fish would end up being the fiercest killers, eventually having to turn on each other. There wasn't even really any pieces of the ten or more other fish in there. I bought more fish, but any fish I put in would get attacked by the now traumatized kisser fish that used to be so peaceful. Sometimes it would wait awhile and I would wake up to find it eating another fish that it killed. I eventually didn't get any more fish until the kisser passed away.

Loved the documentary dude! Super insightful and fascinating! I have one question: How is it that some species can suddenly appear without you having introduced them yourself? Thank you!

My understanding is that if you use objects or dirt you've gathered from the wild, there's going to be eggs and spores and such already embedded in it, as well as tiny animals you may not notice while collecting. These would be what causes the seemingly magical appearances.

Do you have other terrariums for ants and other animals other than your large European vivarium? Cuz if so, I'd live to see videos on those aswell. Maybe you could make videos on specified terrariums for certain ant species. That'd be really cool❤️ Also, do you live permanently in Europe (Sweden?) now or just temporary?

I wish you would come back! Stumbled upon this video and greatly enjoyed it! Definitely on another level. I would never keep ants or insects myself.. :) but loved watching this!

Man I love your channel. Watched you for the first time around 3 years ago and that’s what kicked back my interest in biodiversity & man I haven’t looked back. My only request is that you post more regular! 😂❤
