It's been a while since I've posted on Formiculture, and I thought it would be good to just let everyone know how I'm doing now.

 

I'm definitely still keeping ants! Got a Myrmecia nigrocinta queen, made a YouTube video on that, and a few other new species.

 

So the reason I've pretty much left is there aren't really any Australian users on the forum at all. I have found a good number of aussie ant keepers in AAK though, in the regional channel. If you're on there I'm leptomyrmx#9798.

 

Well, I'll still occasionally check back here, this is still a great forum, everyone knows each other, it's awesome.
