I'm form Hertfordshire UK. I have an omni nest vertical. All I need now is to catch/get a queen to start my first colony.

I'm going to get some red acetate to cover my nest and test tube setups. I had originally planned on decorating my out world with a fine sand layer a few fake plants, small twigs etc, but I'm not sure if I will now or keep the out world I decorated.

Hope your colony grows well.

My omni nest vertical large is setup ready. It is up decorated at the moment. How do people stop test tubes of water from moving in their outworlds.?
