when you say changes you mean when I'll move her to a test tube big enough for her?
I don't have one right now hopefully in 1 or 2 weeks, why?

I will, I'll update the thread every time I check on her!
Once I get home I'll also put the few clips I have on her together so you can probably see her better

Hey everyone :)
So, I managed to get hold of some large test tubes from a local store (>2cm)
Already been working on an attachment for her old set up so I can connect them, should I do it now? since she has only been there for a couple of days I'm reticent to expose her to light, I don't want to stress her too much.

What would you guys do?

Here is the attachment if any of you want to take a look at it

Well I looked at her setup, she already has a lot of eggs, I don't want to disturb her, I'll check on her in one or 2 weeks, if things go bad I'll change her to this new one, but for now things look really good :)

Sorry I didn't have time to take any pictures since I just looked 2-3 seconds xs

Next time I check her I'll try to take at least one, and if she manages to hatch some workers then I'll take a lot of pictures to update here
