I am a new member and am thinking of keeping ants but I am unexperienced so I have no idea where to find queen ants(any species) and what to do

I would suggest finding the AntsCanada youtube channel. If you go back to years before, there are TONS of tutorials that have plenty of info to get you started.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

I'm not sure if this helps: I don't think it has malaysia, but maybe a near by area?

Test tubes can go from 5$ in bulk to 20$ in bulk. The easiest way to buy them is on Amazon I guess.
