Both of these are incredible advanced and difficult species to keep. I recommend the Odontomachus.

You claim you are an "expert" ant keeper. How long have you been keeping ants? what species do you currently keep?

Odontomachus is better, but both incredibly difficult.

I keep Aphaenogaster and Brachymyrmex/Tapinoma (unknown) currently when it comes to strong colonies.
