So I got 6 Pheidole Anastasii queens over the summer as I loved their colour and due to their small size, I can keep large colonies in small setups.
To help keep track of each colony, I have assigned letters to each one A-F.
So here is COLONY A, she has around 10 workers and a pile of brood. moving slowly but steadily:
COLONY B is also doing OK, no majors yet but a lot of eggs:
Colony C also has many eggs and even an adorable major:
Colony D is definitely the best, for now, with multiple majors and lot of brood:
Queens E and F are not doing so well, queen F had workers but lost them and is now back to just eggs, thought I have not seen queen D lay any eggs at all, though I'm sure they will recover with regular feedings and heat.
