I don't really know what you mean with "tube no". It does not really matter if the tubes are long. More important is how wide the tubes diameter on the inside are. Also the queen will probably be able to squeete through most of her tubes.
Doing some proper research is the best way to start an antcolony.

Founding colonies:
2 - Lasius Niger Colony
