I'm just 13 and I don't have much money. And when I get a queen, I might need an ant farm (well obviously).

Testube setup is fine, or check the setup I used in my journal

I made this type of nest for under $15 USD. My ants love it! I don't know if your species needs any special requirements that this nest wouldn't provide, but you could certainly modify it.


Leo is right, though. Most ants can live in a test tube set up for a long time.
