Season 3

EthosLab uploaded his first video on the Hermitcraft server on the 3rd of March 2015 where he was toured around the server by Biffa2001. In episode 3 EthosLab participated in the Boom Box competition made by TangoTek alongside ImpulseSV, XisumaVoid, Falsesymmetry, Sl1pg8r and Zueljin.

EthosLab made a medieval style underground base during the Season, which at one point was pranked by the TEA Agency, which was made up of XisumaVoid and Biffa2001.

EthosLab uploaded his final episode on the 29 September 2015 where he competed in a round of ABBA Caving against Zueljin.

Season 4

EthosLab made his return to the Hermitcraft server when season 4 started in February 2016. He teamed up with friend and fellow former Mindcracker Docm77 and together they built the danglands - a mingame district made up of lots of games such as Whack-A-Mole, Boat Racing, The Fat Princess and Connect 4. Due to the Time Zone difference between Canada and Germany, where Doc and EthosLab live respectively, the duo struggled to find good times to record and as a result didn't post many videos together. EthosLab would upload his final video in Season 4 on the 21 September 2016, where he welcomed another Mindcracker in VintageBeef, to the server.

Season 5

EthosLab returned to the Hermitcraft server when Season 5 started in April 2017. For this Season, EthosLab teamed up with BdoubleO100, Docm77 and VintageBeef to form the NHO (New Hermit Order). The group formed due to them all being friends and previously playing on the Mindcrack server. Together they ventured through the nether and connected to a jungle far away from spawn dubbed the "NHO Jungle". EthosLab would go on to create his Nexus - a giant redstone sorting system in the jungle. He also teamed up with the other members of the NHO to prank MumboJumbo's base, where they covered it with NHO propaganda. EthosLab would upload his final episode on the 15th July 2017. This is Etho's shortest Hermitcraft Season to date.

Season 7

EthosLab's base is located at the Northwestern side of the known map. His closest neighbor is XisumaVoid.

EthosLab has two shops in the shopping district, his first, the Ice Shop, located near the Boomers' storefront, has the Canadian custom of removing your shoes before entering. His second store is Shade-E-E's, a "subscription service". He held a grand opening drawing of a lifetime supply of free glass, but it was a prank, filling up the empty spaces in their chests with light gray stained glass panes renamed "Congratulations on your FREE glass! xD".Then he charges a diamond block to unsubscribe. Now he is offering gardening services, which entail a dirt square with various flowers making an Etho head pixel art. Shade-E-E's also offers a service in which a Hermit can receive 3 diamonds to sign up another Hermit.
