This is my first time raising ants, so I'm still a newbie. I'll post some pictures soon!

The Formica queen seems comfortable in the center, but the Tetramorium seems to want to hang out on the end opposite to the wate...

Difference between Formica and C. Pennsylvanicus?

Is there a major difference between the two species other than color? Do Formica ants also make their homes in rotting wood, or is that just the Camponotas ants?
