This is one of the coolest terrariums I've ever built for my pet ants! A brand new crystal cave temple-themed terrarium has joined the Antiverse (our Ant Room), and it is destined to become the future home for the Golden Empire, my pet supercolony of yellow crazy ants. This complex terrarium build was created specifically for the Golden Empire, and features a rocks, plants, crystals, and a slew of pretty awesome technology never tried before on this channel. Hope you guys enjoy this new terrarium. What should we call it? Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #GoldenEmpire
