(They are an exotic species of Pheidole but I could not fine a Pheidole topic in the exotic species.)
Hey guys!

This is my Pheidole sinica colony!

At the moment they're kept in a large plastic container, inside is their test tube(nest) I will keep them like this until they grow to a larger colony!

The colony consists of the queen, six soldiers(huge heads) 60-70 workers, and a pile of brood at various stages.

Here are some pictures.

My set up.

Got a picture of the queen.

She is the one with the large thorax.(To the left of the blue paper)
On the far right you can make out a pile of brood surrounded by workers and soldiers.

Hey,

What happened with your colony ? Still alive ? I'm interested, because I have this specie too and want to know how other colonies grow.

Best wishes

Colony isn't doing so good man, down to just a few workers. Could do with some advice. How do you keep yours?
