Re: Southeast asian paludarium

I also wonder if the c. singularis won't be a threat to the dragons. It's said that they feed mainly on honey and small insects but I fear they'd try to hunt the dragons ? Or will the ants be afraid of them and avoid contact ?

Re: Southeast asian paludarium

I know that every ant species has to have some protection like stingers or acid. I just don't want species that could harm the dragons eyes like yellow crazy ants did to AntsCanada's bird once. I'm looking for a species as harmless as possible, and I wonder how strong is the acid of c. Singularis.

Re: Southeast asian paludarium

Guys what do you think about camponotus singularis ? As far as I know they inhabit tropical forests of Asia so I think they'd fit the paludarium better than c. Nicobarensis. They're also big enough to attract water dragons so the population could be naturally controlled by the lizards. The only thin...

Re: Southeast asian paludarium

I thought of designing an automatic raining system that would rain at every evening and morning for a few minutes as the sun (lamp) comes up and sets down and the mist coming from the water part to the land for all night. Also I'm thinking of some night lighting imitating the stars during the night ...

Re: Southeast asian paludarium

Yeah I'm sorry my mistake. Every Polish source I've read said they need low humidity but after watching some videos of ant keepers from other countries I know they like the humidity level high.

Re: Southeast asian paludarium

Sorry guys, it's me and my worries again. What do you think of adding camponotus nicobarensis into the paludarium ? As far as I read they are smaller and more calm than the japonicus, but most of the sources say that they prefer low humidity level what makes me a problem because it'll be high humidi...

Re: Southeast asian paludarium

After fast research I'm Keen to Japanese carpenter ant bit here's what worries me. Dragons need humidity at level of 80-90% and the ants need 50-60%. Won't too high humidity level hurt or kill the colony ?

Re: Southeast asian paludarium

I thought of trap jaws but as far as I know they unfortunately do have strong stingers.
