If you transferring to new test tube. The way I do it . I tape them together with blue tape then cover the new one and set a light on old one . I hope your ants do better. Tetramorium Sp e is my first colony since 2018.

That's a good way but they would lose access to their outworld and feeders ..and I can't fit two tubes in the box together.... with all the water and being happy in the tube I don't think they'd have moved on their own.

But that's a great way if you have the time and resources.

Do you have a journal on your colony? I'd love to read more about your girls.

:( no I didn’t make one :( . I was so excited when I got my first Queen * Tetras sp e * from this forum that I disappeared for almost 3 years . I moved them to a formicarium from THA “Casita” one day I was moving them and the formicarium fell to the ground *screaming internally * luckily only one glass broke and again luckily was the dump side area * empty* I used a glass from a pic frame temporary. The. Order a replacement for $3dlls from THA . We been living in peace since then . No more accidents .

Sadly we lost some workers. They just kinda fell over and died .. I guess stress.

Happily the queen is a fricken beast egg laying machine. Geeze
