Thought I would make a little journal for this colony I have. Maybe 50+ colony with several majors. Extremely shy, yet aggressive and completely nocturnal
I've had this colony for a month or so in a temporary housing but made a custom outworld for them. I purchased a small and medium acrylic formicarium nest from Antkit but everything else is what I've made myself. I left the small formicarium with light on so they move into main nest in the vids.
So there was a big move and was really fun watching. It was instant as soon as I placed them inside the outworld they went from test tube to nest in minutes, guess they enjoyed it! I made several short vids I'll post up.
Mixed seeds (almost any seed they can carry),
Sugar/honey/maple syrup water (although only seen drinking once when first purchased colony),
Insects: woodlouse/fruit flies/crickets (they love woodlouse)
