Hi guys I just want to say thank you all for the advise in the past on keeping ants. It seemed I was rubbish at keeping ants. To be honest I had finished the hobby until I found a great offer, which was my Pogonomyrmex queen. So I got her In August. I found great advise from a number of people (AntChrist) lol
and have finally managed to get out of the founding stage. Anyway 10 days ago I updated the colony saying they had eggs and that's all. So now 10 days on the colony have around 5 larvae, 3 being nearly adult size and a couple small ones and some eggs. It seems the colony has started to grow faster now. I thank God for giving me patience with ants and finally giving me the only species I can keep.
So now I have grown allot and have tried to fix my spelling issue and grown patience, my colony is finally growing.
As of always pictures:
They have now got a small area to feed from. It have a very thin layer of sand inside. The testube is inside a new sock with tape around it. Even though I only have 2 workers they eat alot and there is always 1 worker out looking for food. They exept any insect I put in. They have not eatten any seeds yet.
