I finally got an ant colony after all mine died last year. It's nothing to special, just a single queen (for now I do plan to go back and get more of the colony later) and around 100 ish Workers.
The actual colony was pretty large and I assume has many queens that are hidden deep within the nest. The ground was sort of clay underneath the first few inches so it became very hard to get anywhere.
I put a rock ontop of it so I'm hoping to trick them into going up near the surface come the heat of the mid-day so I can just flip the rock over and collect more of the Colony.
Here's a video of the colony outside:
I still haven't set them up into anything yet but I will make another video on that later.
