Also, can you check the measurements? I don't believe this is Brachymyrmex anymore.

Ants don't like living in their food, they won't eat. Also, there's no protein; the brood will not develop.

Somewhat. How are you hydrating her? By all means, it's better than gel. Remember to feed them.

The two capsule at the bottom are food and water.

Honey and either mealworms, crickets, fruit flies, or roaches.

Also, did you check that measurement? I think this is another genus entirely. ;)
