One of my C. floridanus colonies is enjoying their new formicarium. I had their old test tube setup upside down in the outworld with light shining on them for two days, but they refused to move. I forced the issue, and they seem to be doing well now. It is much easier to observe them in this setup as opposed to their previous test tube with a DIY tupperware outworld.
