Lasius Niger

Hello guys, I live in the Netherlands and want to keep a colony when I move out of my parents house. I found that the most general ant found here is from the Lasius Niger. However I have a lot of trouble to find information about them. Preferably I would like to have done all my research before I start. I hope someone can patch me up on the characteristics of a Lasius Niger colony. Thanks for checking.

No The Black Knights are a black crazy ant colony (Paratrechina Longicornis) You can tell since they are slimmer and darker than Lasius Niger ants.
