init! biggest recorded dry weight diffrence was 500x!
I found myself ignoring the workers a bit and taking lots of pics of majors, but actually workers do most of the work, and have a really fascinating interaction with one another, unfortunetly its pretty much impossible to see without looking thru a macro lens lol they really are fearless little things!
Strangly, these ants are far more active when their nest is between 24-25C, I try to keep the nest at a steady 25C now, as this seems optimal, once I have got their setup sorted however, I will be making a cool section 24-25C and a hot section, 25-27C, and 2 sections on the surface at 26C & 30C, however I dont know when it will be ready, as escape prevention is still an issue, electrical barriers havent worked so far, but I have another idea I'm working on, once I've got a working solution I'll post a 'how to' up
