Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

- (7-16-17) Sold my first colony via the GAN website today. Yay! My biggest Myrmica colony. I wish them and their new owner well. ^-^ Good timing, since I could use the money (need to start making up for what I've spent on ant supplies so far, lol). Also, decided to brood-boost my Formica queen with...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

- (7-25-17) - Not much to report. Lost my newer Myrmica queen. Forgot they were semi-claustral :x Ugh...such a stupid newbie mistake. Anyways, all the other ants seem to be doing well. Lately, I've been trying to think of a good way to do a dirt set-up for my Ponera, just because I think they'd like...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

- (7-21-17) So, I had fun at the park today. Didn't find any queens, but I found other ant activities going on that caught my attention. _xfOUM41Hs6k Ant raid! I've been told the raiders are Formica aserva, and the ones being raided might be Formica subsericea. I'm just glad I got the genus right :D...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

Hopefully I did it right and you now have the video on your page here XD It did! Thank you! And I saw in the quote coding how you did it, so hopefully now I should be able to add more later too. There's going to be more, I'm in the process of uploading one now. Ran across something interesting at t...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

I made my first video update for Maya! I was super surprised. She's up to 8 nanitics already! I hadn't been able to see because of the condensation on the formicarium. https://youtu.be/_4Oq0mUvShI (For some reason, the embed code isn't working for me on this forum. Oh well. I'll just have to share t...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

- (7-19-17) Well, I am tired, lol. Spent yesterday at a park, caught one new queen I am suspecting is Monomorium minimum. I'm planning on finally getting a macro lens for my phone to take better ant pics instead of fumbling with the magnifying lens. After the running around the park, I nearly pulled...

Re: Hikari's C. Pennsylvanicus journal

Congratulations on Maya's first workers and Terra pupae. My Iridomyrmyx queen "Suzy" got her first nanitic yesterday aswell! It's really a very exiting time for antkeepers at this early stage. It's a lot of fun! They're really cute, and amusing to watch. Couldn't agree more! I've been watching a fe...
