Hey guys, I woke up this morning to find eggs in one of the test tubes. This is my first eggs and the heating Matt temperature was just right around 25 degrees.

Hey everyone, to day is the weekly check up of my founding queen ants. Nothing much has changed since we last saw them except for an increase in eggs and size hopefully they hatch in the next week or two.

hey everyone, i am really exited about a huge increase in eggs, I've counted at least 15+ in one set up that was the first one i caught, most eggs are larger than other because of the first batch. another one has around ten or so, and the last one just started to lay with around 5 eggs. ill post a pic tomorrow morning. hopefully they should start hatching soon. :D
