Re: Help, she's dying... I think

Sugar water is probably the closest thing to honey. But is more dangerous in my opinion because of how liquidy it is. If you put to much, she could drown. You have to put just enough so that it satisfy her needs and doesn't leave much to flow around the tube. As for disturbing her with light, ants c...

Re: Prenolepis Imparis Merging Colonies

Ouch, so its a gamble. I wonder if it would have been best to move them into a test tube at the beginning? I could try to separate two workers (from different colonies) and place them in an open space (I guess arena is a better term) and see if they fight? It would either prove they are friendly tow...

Prenolepis Imparis Merging Colonies

I've heard that prenolepis imparis can have multiple queens but I can't find any definitive answer. I have 3 queens one has no workers or brood, and the other two have around 20 workers each.Is it possible to merge them at this time period? The colony growth has been kinda slow and I feel having thr...

Re: Two Species in One Set up

That would be two different setups right? I was wondering if I can place them in the same setup since they are not active at the same times in the year, also that Prenolepis Imparis is MUCH smaller than the camponotus meaning the camponotus won't be able to fit in their tunnels, I've also heard that...

Re: Two Species in One Set up

Usually around room temp but I have had a mystery going on. For the past week my goldfish have been dyin, one every day. It has a proper filter, current, and temperature. I've even checked PH levels and seem to be around 7.2ish (the average for goldfish being 7.5) which is .3 lower than preferable. ...

Two Species in One Set up

I'm rather inexperienced in ant keeping and have been watching a lot of YouTube videos (that's how you learn how to do things now a days lol) and stumbled across AntsCanada, which launched me into having the desire of creating my own set up with my own queen! I continued to browse through ant relate...
