Having spoken to a local exotic pet shop i have been informed they have myrmica rubra in stock so it looks like i will be beginning with these!

however they are not housed how i wish to house them in the future, i am hoping to use a similar set up supplied by antkit.uk or antscanada.

i have attached photo's of the tank they are kept in.

if it doesnt work the tank is link a smnall insect tank with cork nests and no small tubes etc. how would i transferr the ants when ready?

furthermore how much room do ants need?

any advice will be received gratefully.
