    As a Geo Ecology student with great interest for film and animation I’d love a project where you would film a nature documentary about small live in an ecosystem only to zoom out in the end to show the audience, that what they thought was an entire rain forest is actually the tank in this guys living room. Imagine the amazement over the video perspective, scientific study, ecological experiment and human craftsmanship!

    I had an aquarium with enough plants and aquatic life that I eventually didn't need to put food in anymore. It was self sustaining and the water was crystal clear. Was like a master level setup. Crazy what nature can do if you just add the right ingredients and leave it alone. I had to move out of state an unfortunately gave it to a guy who didn't realize what he had. I think about that aquarium all the time. 😭

      @captnwinkle 55 gallon. You have to have a lot of hiding places. Java moss is good for that. Oscars and Cichlids are pretty aggressive though and will dig around more and destroy plants. Prolly not the best fish for a semi peaceful community. Also another issue people have with shrimp is they get sucked up in the filters. Especially the babies.

    • captnwinkle

      @CK Norris every time I buy shrimp and put em in the tank I never see them again...
      How many gallons? I habe 59 I think and have 1 big Cancer survivor Oscar, a big Cichlid, 2 mediom Cichlids (these 4 ha e been around for years) amd 2 tiny Cichlids. And some snails and a Pleco

      @Sid Java moss and another plant I can't remember the name. It started off as a single small plant and I just kept breaking off pieces and planting in other areas until it filled the whole tank. Random assortment of freshwater fish and nano shrimp. Fish ate the shrimp, shrimp ate the plants, algae and waste. Plants filtered the tank. I will try and do some research and see if I can come up with the other plant name.

    Really cool! So much going on! Side note....the baby geckos aren't technically "clones" because they don't have identical DNA to the parent. In this type of parthenogenisis the chromosomes are still crossed over and there is recombination. So.... new DNA!!! FREAKING AWESOME!

      @the book of random You should add predators for the snails, have predators reproduce into larger populations, so that you can add more predators, and just keep the cycle going. Snyder’s Moray can grow up to 4.5 - 7 inches. They are a neat predator to have inside of your ecosystem, to catch shrimps, or snails while camouflaging inside the water.

      @Flesh&Bones
      Wow, thanks for your reply!
      I wish I had the place and resources for such a big enclosure currently..
      I have a 60x40x40cm paludarium tank with false bottom, bioactive with springtails, isopods, live plants and about 1/3 water area with a small waterfall.
      The online sellers usually say that a small bowl of water is sufficient for these crabs, but I usually distrust a big seller who explains how easy it is to provide for a certain animal - it shouldn't be about minimum requirements, but now I hope they will use the water part at all.. 😅
      G. dennerle var. "dare devil" is one of my favourites. Initially I wanted to order them 2 days ago, but in the beginning of september we will have a terraristics convention here in Berlin and I decided to wait for it because I refrain from ordering animals online if there are alternatives.
      5cm deep burrows are a very helpful information though - they will find places for it in my enclosure.
      Thanks for your detailed answer and greetings from Berlin!

    • Flesh&Bones
      Flesh&Bones 3 tháng trước +1

      @Kai Schiller I do have a Geosesarma dennerle, they are a "Daredevil" color morph (at least that's what they are called here).
      My tank is 90x90x45cm (W, H, D). They usually only are on the ground of the tank, sometimes behind a wooden structure close to the water - but almost never inside. My tank is very humid, it's currently more likely a swamp. I used a webcam to check if they ever come out. They are digging 4-5cm into the ground and live there, usually coming out when every light in the room is turned off and it's silent.
      It's a bioactive paludarium with shrimp, snails, isopods and (hitchhiked) mini centipedes.
      I've never seen them anywhere above ground level, neither have babies that I know of. Probably will build another "observer" tank to study them a little and build them a better enclosure later.

    You should try to make an ecosystem where you introduce animals that evolved for a different enviorement and try to see their characteristics change. Basically artificial speciation.

    Definitely keep updating how it's doing. I wonder how long it would be sustainable. When one species has a hard time or goes extinct, throwing the whole ecosystem off balance.

    Do you ever worry about overpopulation of the mourning geckos? Or do the crabs and adult geckos maintain it? I'm just thinking about making a paludarium with mourning geckos and I want to know what you recommend to keep the population from going out of control. Love your videos! Keep up the good work!

    In the year 2024: ON OUR LAST EPISODE we ordered some homo sapiens and dropped them in our Earth biosphere because it's pretty cool to watch them fight off big predators and hunt the megafauna we introduced before. But when we came back to check on them a few dozen kiloyears later, they had built over pretty much everything in the display and it was getting a bit too hot and humid. So now we've got a few Xenomorph Queens and we're going to see how they do...

      You aren’t lazy you just created more than this guy in the video ever has which is a real family. Not a tank full of things built to survive on their own but a family of people who rely on you. That the part that so many of my fellow under 30yr olds don’t get. These projects and other shit will never compare to what they are psychologically trying to compensate for.

    You know... it really is interesting how humans treat certain species. You mentioned not being comfortable with leaving the gekos in the tank... but then crabs are just allowed to rip each other apart. It is just an interesting observation how the instant something has a skeleton instead of a exoskeleton we start valuing its life more than other animals. Like when I saw the baby gekos I felt a pit in my stomach about them being killed and eaten, but then stopped and asked myself why I didn't feel the same way for the other animal babies. Neat tank over all!

      @Uzay Ozbek Yeah.
      I often forgot that when I'm eating meat, that that meat came from a living animal.
      It's enough to make some people go vegan, but in my opinion since the cows are already dead, I might as well eat them. Plus they taste good.

    • Zer_Trent
      Zer_Trent 3 tháng trước

      @MrEduedu123 Couple things. I am not vegan and I just acknowledge that an animal would kill and eat me too and I wouldn't see it as maliciousness, just nature doing nature stuff. Though I do feel the meat industry has major issues of waste and that is the main reason I have reduced my meat consumption.
      So whether crustaceans can feel pain is technically still debated, but I feel it isn't relevant since crabs do perceive threats and can react to their bodies touching things. So whether or not they 'feel pain' in the exact same way as us doesn't dismiss the fact that they try to run from danger.
      Crabs don't scream when boiled as they do not have a vocal chords with which to vocalize... the reality is much worse. They are a hard shell with a lot of water inside so the screaming noise is actually their insides boiling and pressurized steam shooting out through the cracks like a tea kettle.
      Other semi related fact spiders make a hissing noise but it isn't with their mouth as they also lack vocal chords. The hissing noise is produced by them rubbing their pedipalps and fangs together similar to how crickets make the chirping noise with their legs.

    • Priestofgoddess
      Priestofgoddess 3 tháng trước

      @Scarlet wings I do not think, it is this arbitrary. Dogs (former wolves) were trained to guard your sheep, your farm or your family. They also have softer fur and better ways to express themselves. I doubt a boar could ever adopt that in such a role or even be trusted with your children. Male boars are loners by nature.
      The fact, we are not eating dogs is more a cultural thing. Asia just seems to be more open minded in regards of food and live the omnivoric nature of humans much more: bat, spiders, egg duckling, monkey brains... It is also likely caused by the fact, that Europe and North America got filthy rich by exploiting all other continents, so they can afford easily to be picky eaters and even turn pets into child replacements.

    • Swag Dinner Money
      Swag Dinner Money 3 tháng trước +2

      It's likely the fact that we are more distantly related to crabs than we are to geckos. Humans typically have the closest bonds with other mammalians than they do with any other kind of animals. While yes, humans can form bonds with other animals, it typically wont be as close due to the fact that the farther you get away from being closely related to them the more distance that is easy to create mentally between the two, hence why we might be ok with seeing a worm get torn apart but not something like a dog. Even with the sentience and immense unique intelligence of some creatures who aren't very closely related to us (like some crabs for example) we still find some way to distance ourselves from them emotionally simply because of how distant they are to us. When you think about things that aren't even animals but are still alive, like bacterium and fungi, as well as plants even, we don't even really feel any kind of emotional attachment to them as we would for any other animal in general.
      There's also cultural differences and things to take into account, hence why we're ok with killing cows and pigs and other cattle for food, but not something like dogs, despite the fact that most cattle can form just as deep of a bond with humans as dogs typically are known to do. If you were to isolate a human population and for whatever reason they took a liking to something like snails, over many years of close relation and interaction with snails those snails and humans would form a similar bond like we have with the modern domesticated dogs.
