Just some random pics of my Tetras eating their favorite food . Pork, dandelion flower and Cheerio . Didn’t know they like the actual flower . Planing to buy micro lens for incoming pics.

They will need insect protein to thrive.

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.

I have never heard of Tetramorium eating flowers. I will have to try that someday with a new tetramorium colony, since my old one got eaten by Argentine ants.

they got a fresh bee and fly . This time of the year I leave a small piece of meat outside in a bag so flys lay eggs and my ants love the larvae.
