Hi, I can't Find any test tubes in my area. Do you know of any alternative setups? I have been using Vinyl tubing but it is a nuisance to set them up. the setup seems to be working though as I have successfully raised a colony of suspected iridomyrmex sp.

If you use something else then test tubes, I would like to know.
2 x iridomyrmex sp Queen:15+ workers
2 x iridomyrmex pallidus: 40+ workers
1 x pheidole megacephala:2 queen 300 workers.
1 x opisthopsis Queen: 14 workers
