Hi everybody, this journal will cover my colony Tetramorium caespitum.
My first colony and for a long while probably only colony.
The colony and a small starterset from esthetic ants finally arrived.
They have 9 workers and a bit of tiny brood. There where no deaths during transport.
I fed them a fruit fly, a piece of sunflower seeds and a bit of jelly from the set. They took to the fly and seed almost immediatly but have ignored the jelly so far,
I currently keep them in our warm living room at around 23°C, to speed up their growth. I might add a small heating pad or cable to make it even warmer.
