KK, but try not to leave it too long before you get them if you plan on putting them with their friends that you already have.

These ants will merge colonies together very easily, but I only plan to make it three days max. I don't want thousands of ants after all !

I got some more ants, mainly workers, I am about to go back out again and maybe get some more. I found 20+ Alates, and probably 10 Queens, I only took three, and named one Queen Blue, you'll find out why when i get another few pictures and such Very Happy I don't know weather I will just add them all together and make a huge colony [probably] or keep them separate.

I added them all together, and gave them a nice foraging area, they attacked a mealworm i fed them [i killed it this time] and gave them water/syrup. They don't seem to be all balled up anymore and I think as long as I don't disturb them much they should do fine. I nammed a queen in this colony "Bleu" [Blue but different Razz ] because I painted her blue.

Yes it does mess with people Very Happy That's why I chose Bleu! haha.

Ants are pretty fun, but i don't recommend getting a huge colony like mine, they take a bit of work.
