This c.maritimus colony has about 13 workers. They basically eat anything I feed them except fruit flies. Its strange how none of my ants like fruit flies. At the front of their test tube soil is used to block off most of the entrance. So whenever I feed them, I destroy the wall they made and than they just rebuild it. They're gonna need an outworld soon.

If you're wondering why my C.Maritimus have dirt inside their test tube, I wanted to test out what the C.Maritimus would do with the dirt. They blocked the back of the living area with the dirt and partly blocked the front of the tube.

My pictures will get better eventually...

 Its strange how none of my ants like fruit flies. 

Probably because you don't keep many small ants.

That's very true. I'm assuming small ants love fruit flies...

Ok I can make an update on this journal soon, but pictures will be harder to take, as they like to run to the dark when I try to feed them.

This journal update has been postponed for two weeks, as by the time I remembered to update my journals the maritimus already went into hiding. Sorry!
