ok so a lot has happened (kind of)
so a week or so ago i found that the new colony's queen had died so i released them. as for the old colony they are doing great!! they have no deaths and i also upgraded their set up with a plastic box and potting soil. all of their host brood is pupae now and hoping for new workers soon. her eggs are doing great too.
