I need your help! My massive pet fire ant colony (the 'Phoenix Empire') is growing at such a rapid rate now and I have to decide what our next step will be. Today I show you how big the ant colony is now, what they're current housing is, and what our options are for the fate of our beloved fire ants. Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

AC Family, thanks for watching and helping me out! As mentioned in this video, please look for my hearted posts in the comments and *LIKE* the option of your choice to leave your vote! You can vote for more than one option, and you can also give feedback under the post! I can't wait to see/read your thoughts! Let's give the Phoenix Empire the best life! Ant love forever! EDIT: Apparently, the three posts to vote are being buried! I'm still jaded that RUvid removed the voting function in the videos. It makes things so hard. I may try #hashtags next time and use an outside app to count the votes. Sorry about this AC Family!

What you should do is call in the pest control people. Our government is doing all they can to eradicate these fire ants here in Australia and here you are keeping them as a source of entertainment.WTF.?

Double the ants and then ants needed to wait for other ants to enter the nest other wise the ants would need to go on the other ants

I think when there’s a lot of fire ants you need to buy a biggest aquarium for the ants because there is a lot it looks Like a colony of the biggest ants looks like the colony but do it now

Put a ant-eater plant like in past vids to control the population. It may sound cruel but its out of control.

If you got rid of the queen ant then it would get out of control but also less ant babies, but if you did get rid of the queen then the ants would most likely die.
