So many cool species jjust listed right here!  I know about... 5% of the species listed here.   Mostly just from having seen the names.   I keep vvery little..

 

Camponotus Discolor (easily 300 strong right now with PILES of brood and new callows every day) 
Camponotus Nova:  Um... down tothe queen.   Her daughters absconded on her somehow and never came back.   She takes care of herselff.  Hoping for more brood soon.   She's FEISTY

Campnotus .. I never remember this species name.  They're medium sized and black.   Anyway, it's the queen annd about a dozen workers, very shy.   

Trachhymyrmex... In Illinois so not sure the suffix here either.  They were a gift.   Doing REALLY well at over 200 workers.  Hard to tell as they mostly stay underground.   

Formica Subsicera:  May or may not have left the building.   They are also in a dirt setup which is slightly disturbed from time to time.   SOME evidence of life.   

I am fully addicted to this hobby now and excited to try and do more and more unique setups for them in the future.   

Pogonomyrmex will be my next species (Occi's) and I already have their forever home in the works.   Again, somewhat unique.   

Thanks to everyone for posting all over and sharing info with noobs like me!

Have kept- 

Lasius sp

Camponotus modoc *

Tetramorium immigrans 

Crematogaster sp

Pogonomyrmex occidentalis *

Formica sp (probably subsericea) 

 

It's more than that but I can't remember right now so maybe I'll update later, haha.
