How do you even feed these guys when they're in a test tube? They're so frantic I don't see how one would do it.


There are videos of my ants here: https://www.youtube....bN5yYK2KWXA0vQ?

I don't. I only put them in a test tube when someone wants to buy them in a test tube. I won't even sell more than 20 in a test tube, because it's too hard to even get them in there.
