as far as nest selection. i would put Lasius sp. in one with more visibility. i say this because IMO Lasius sp. workers look really cool.
what does IMO mean?

Good news: the first two nanitics arrived for one of my tetramorium queens! one of the others should have hers in the next couple of days!

Bad news;
The experimental colony that had two queens was flooded. they appeared dead so I threw them out. then I learned that they were probably still alive but the brood was dead. :(

There's a good chance that maybe they were still alive. I've seen ants floating in water in test tubes for a whole day only to see them get up and act fine several hours later. I know I threw out a whole bunch of Tetramorium queens that I thought were drowned. They probably later climbed out of my garbage and could be laying eggs in my house right now! I have a retro prom queen now with a bunch of eggs and am wondering when they will enclose. I see from your ants that it took about a month. How are they doing now?

Yeah I learned that they were probably still alive after i flushed them down the toilet. :? But to answer your question I now only have two tetramorium colonies. the one that had four queens killed the other three during egg stage and then produced 3 workers before i released them. I decided to take the brood from that colony and give it to one of my prospering tetramorium colonies before releasing it. then I flushed the colony with two queens that I was sure had drowned down the toilet. Now I have two colonies left. I have the one that has extra brood from the colony I have realeased, and I have one other tetramorium queen. The first one has 13 -15 workers and the second 12 -14.
