Never thought of this. I wonder if the Betta would eat the ants that make it into the house.... Or I could put the chemicals down... Good way to save on money with proper placing of the Betta bowl..

Ant farms , wow they still make them? I remember them growing up as a kid. You would buy the ant farm and then send away for a tube full of ants to stock it with. It was pretty cool as a kid to watch them.
Showing my age here LOL

Fire ants have venom that contains toxic alkaloids. Not sure of the effect on fish tbh. Also the colonies of these ants are HUGE hundreds to thousands of ants. The number of new ants hatched will outnumber any you catch.
