Hello all !!
Even though my colony still is only my Queen and 14-16 eggs, i dream about making them a formicarium that resembles the woods where i collected them (i know it is impossible but still )
I'm thinking of using a 80 liter aquarium, and put a piece of a treetrunk 1/4 with bark and all, and clue it to one of the glass ends.
My question is, should i take a piece of dead wood, or can i use a piece of fresh wood, and let it decay over time?
I'm leaning towards a new piece of tree, and add some chunks of dead/decaying wood and bark to add the bacteria and mini-life that lives in the wild... Any inputs? all is welcome, and i know i won't need it for 2-3 years
