Journey of my Trap Jaw Ant Colony

Hello, This is my first legitimate try at keeping an ant colony and this is my journey.
It started out at this forum post (https://forum.AntsCanada.com/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=11563) if you want to see from the beginning.

It has now been almost 2 months since I started taking care of her and now she has brood and at least 2 worker ants with a total of 3 ants including herself.

I will try and update weekly and if not bi-weekly depending on if anything interesting has happened.
It will be awesome to be able to share with some fellow ant keeping enthusiasts as I take care of these awesome ants!

We now have 4 workers!!!
The colony has been growing really fast and I'm really happy about that. They have also started digging tunnels in the sand underneath the piece of bark beside the wall, you can see the pile to the right of the bark. It's probably because they were running out of room in the test tube.
I'm planning on changing the soil to more of a dirt/clay type soil so that I don't have to worry about their tunnels collapsing if the soil gets too dry.

Is there a chunk of wood in the dirt?
