Completed lids. Wire mesh for security.
chambers deepened and tunnels widened. The new ants are big! Went with the white on black for good contrast. Paint is non toxic kids poster paint.

the grass is in there, just needs to grow, starting with seeds. plants will come once they seem like they will survive.

You don't talk much about your Myrmecia nigrocincta anymore. What happened with them?

Yeah. The "I found some myrmecia" thread is all about the nigrocincta.

I caught the tarsata just after I got the tank and changed plans. The tank was going to be for the nigrocincta but seeing how much larger and more entertaining the tarsata were, I decided to give it to them instead.

Upon extended observation I have noticed a very aggressive ant in this nest. It is always grabbing others and trying to kill them. I pulled it out and painted its head pink as punishment. When I put it back it resumed attacking. I may have to remove this ant from the colony, it does not play well with others.

Here is yellow bum. I will be tracking pink and yellow bums progress through the nest and seeing what their roles are.
Pink bum was hanging out on the lid when caught and is now foraging.
Yellow bum was a nest entrance guard. She is now digging.
