Lots of development since the last update. Three days ago I moved the colony into their first formicarium (an AusAnts Size 2 Acrylic nest) and they have over 130 workers now. That is about 100 workers gained in less than two months. They are getting such large workers that it is taking me a minute to actually spot the queen (Tetrionna). She completely blends in with them. Their nest is sitting inside a plastic container with sand at the bottom which is what is now their outworld.
She is right out in the open in this picture.
Here they are moving into the new formicarium. They basically starting bringing the brood in immediately.
