Best Hydration Medium for Hybrid Nest 2.0

I just got the new tetramorium hybrid nest 2.0, and I was wondering what the recommended hydration medium was for the nest. I used cotton balls on my old hybrid nest, but the hydration system has changed a bit and I’m wondering if cotton balls are still a good option.

A 15 watt cable will do just fine.
that i knew but itwas the degrees thati was more on after!
A 15 watt cable has a standard temperature, there’s 15 watts running through the cable hence the cable is a constant temperature equivalent to 15 watts.

AntsCanada suggests a heating cable to speed up the process of ant production. What kind of cable is correct and where can I buy it?
This is the one I use. Zoo Med Reptile Heat Cable 15 Watts, 11.5-Feet https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001LQUZAM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_6TMBBbYDCBX88

I've placed them next to my ant colony in a dark place so idk what happend but i cant feed my ants with them right?
To be safe I would say don’t feed them to your ants, because they died so quickly that they could’ve been exposed to something.

Re: Older fruit flies

Did you put the fruit flies in direct sunlight or something? They shouldn’t have died that fast.

Re: My larvae is brown!

The pupae turn brown when they’re near eclosing. Pupa darken as they mature and come closer to an adult ant.
