Re: Looking to start my first Formicarium!

first, yes the testtube with water will work fine

yes any decor is great but dont put too much.

putting it on a desk will be fine, only put the heat mat on the side of the nest only.

and i highly suggest waiting until next spring to buy the queen. no point right now.

good luck

Re: Hi ant enthusiasts, I am new :)

Welcome James,
make yourself comfortable. we are all very nice and helpful so any questions will definitely be answered here.

Dont mind the bots as there are a lot these days.

also, it will be pretty rare to catch any queens as it is almost time for hibernation.
anyway have fun
