Hello there. I've had many pets in the past. New to Ant keeping and I'm not sure what to do here. I purchased a Honeypot queen with about 10-12 workers + about 12 eggs. They are in a handmade little modular farm created by an ant breeder from the Reptile Super Show.
I placed the ants into the little farm from out of the test tube setup they were purchased in. My question is this.. Should I move the queen to the bottom of the setup? (There is humidity below + water source below) but the queen and her eggs are all above the ground, and she's kind of fat in the booty. There is a way for her to get below but it's a tighter squeeze through the tubing.. will she eventually go below the surface or should I move her down there? So far all the ants are above the surface.
Please and thank you. New to ant keeping, and I know, I will have to move my colony after about 6-8 months into something bigger.
