Hello everyone,

 

My name is Aaron and I've been wanting to get into ant keeping for quite some time now. (The last five yrs or so) I have been following Ants Canada/Australia/etc and random forums for about 7 or 8 years. Always been an enthusiast, so I finally did it this weekend and bought myself some ants and a formicarium. Now I know that some people are against shipping ants, and that its almost nuptial flight for the species I will be housing. (Tetramorium) AND I realize that they grow in size as a colony fairly quickly as well, but seeing as how I bought a hybrid nest from Ants Canada already, and canada-ant-colony had such amazing reviews, I decided to just purchase a starting colony so I can move them into the formicarium right away. Or once they settle for a day or so. If i did catch any myself during nuptial, I could use them to brood boost for awhile and then move her to a test tube for hibernation before they start killing each other lol.

 

Being as this is my first colony - and I can now share in the journey with all you other enthusiasts - I decided to join the forums myself. So I can hopefully learn what I don't know yet and share my knowledge/experiences with who I can. I will definitely start a journal and post pics of my setup, with some explanation so I can hear what you all think. I'm fairly confident with what I have but there might be something I'm not covering and love to hear it!

 

Thanks for having me and look forward to being here.

 

Aaron

All sorts of antics!! ... :lol:

 

Okay, I'll leave. That's the ant-ire joke anyways.

Welcome, Aaron! You picked a good species to start with. Tetras are a lot of fun to keep. Look forward to following your journal.

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.

Thanks! Yeah, from what I've read/watched they seem like a good start. Should be a fun journey. If I don't make too many mistakes lol.
