Hey guys, i’ve done a little snooping already but can’t really find anything. Has anyone got a link to (or similar) a guide on everything Iridomyrmex Purpureus? As much info as I can get in 1 place is kinda what i’m looking for. Any help highly appreciated.

I’ve found all the wiki stuff but I’m more thinking on the keeping side of things I should mention.

from watching a few ants Australia vids a little while back. I can tell you they are not picky eaters, grow very fast (may require new nests every few weeks), have strong bites, like moderate-dry moister levels and in the wild can get to over 11000 workers strong (this would take a long time to get to in captivity).
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
