I think that the coolest type of ants are Pheidole.. those big heads on the majors are so cool!

 

As far as species that I've kept, I would have to go with my Stenamma colony.  It was cool raising a semi claustral queen and when she finally raised workers that was awesome seeing that.  Now the colony is at about 25 workers going into hibernation.
