Yeah I tried to do what the video said and I left the queens for about 10 hours and they never moved out of their testube, they have barely any water left and I need to move them, the queens have workers and eggs so I don't know what to do please help

I had this issues, all you can do is leave them and wait to realise there is a better place to nest with more moisture. If you have a lamp you can put almost against the back of the old test tube that can give them a little extra nudge. But like it says in the videos, if could take a few minute or it can take days.
Research is important before during and even after you have established a colony. There is always time to learn and to listen to others experiences. Live by this and your ants will thrive. Fail to do so and your experience may be brief.

Some ants are very stubborn, though.
