Can’t make a stable ecosystem in the Rainforest biodome? Well, this guide will be showing you how to create a stable ecosystem in the game.
Plants, Decomposers, and Pollinators
These 3 life forms are crucial to an ecosystem and without them, the whole ecosystem would collapse.
First, we start with the plants. I recommend starting with ferns, amazon tree flames, orchids, and zebra plants. Once you finish that place down your moths, but if you have the blue morpho butterflies.
I recommend you use both of them because it will increase animal diversity, pollination and more Tyto coins will be received after a month, due to the diversity.
Lastly, we have our decomposers. My favorite is the ants, but you should start with the mushrooms if you don’t have the ants, but can also use Millipedes or Earthworms if you own them. If you don’t know what decomposers do, I’ll tell you. Decomposers Get rid of Waste matter, like dead animals or waste products from animals.
There are about 21 animal species (includes pollinators and decomposer insects) and about 32 lifeforms in the rainforest biodome. I will put every animal on the page with some information about each one.
- Armadillo: These creatures are insectivores and will eat your pollinators and insect decomposers. I don’t recommend you spawn these creatures until you have a lot of insects (mainly ants).
- Frogs: Frogs are also insectivores and will eat your pollinators and insect decomposers. I recommend also have lots of insects before adding them to the biodome.
- Insects: These are mainly your pollinators and decomposers, who are insects and should have loads of insects before adding insectivores. You must have insects in your biodome or it would be very chaotic since there are mainly pollinators and decomposers.
- Ocelot: This mammal is a small but efficient hunter, eating small and medium animals, but larger predators also prey on this carnivore, such as cougars and jaguars.
- Agouti: There are small rodents but have a 3 tier reproduction, which did surprise me, and also recommend this to be your first animal, but wait for the population to rise before adding a carnivore, the best carnivore would be the ocelot since the other 2 carnivores are large and will eat more.
- Yellow-Foot Tortoise: These reptiles can only be eaten by cougars and jaguars, their shell ocelots can not eat them. This reptile also should be added later in the biodome, when you have some cougars or jaguars.
- Coatimundi: These are omnivores and a great beginner animal alongside agouti because it’s an omnivore and will eat plants and also maybe keep the agouti populations or other herbivores smaller than it stable.
- Green iguana: This reptile in my opinion is hard to keep alive with carnivores and not many herbivores around to distract them. I suggest you should add them later or at the start of your biodome where they have time to populate and expand.
- Marsh deer: They are large and chunky. This deer is a great meal for any carnivore but cannot be hunted by ocelots. Be sure to have plenty of plants before adding them because there large and I eat a lot.
- Jaguar: This predator has no natural threats as an adult and it’s basically the apex of the biodome. Young jaguars can fall prey to cougars though and eat a lot of meat so I suggest you have large herbivores around. I don’t have enough space to tell you about the other animals, so sorry.
Probably the thing that could get in your way but doesn’t worry I found a way to get lots of Tyto coins. First, you need lots of different species of plants and pollinators + decomposers. That should get you to a good diversity but no animals. Now you should just wait about 3 months in-game and if you have 25 Tyto coins or 25+ you can skip time for 3 months witch gives you 25+ Tyto coins. Wait until the price decreases on the skip thing and redo it over and over again. If you have enough Tyto coins you can skip a year or 4 months and keep redoing it and you will get lots and lots of Tyto coins. It works on any biodome too! Hope this helped!
