freeding the ants

the ants seem to be in thier(?) outworld alot so im feeding them alot. and my fruit flies are dying
they have reached thier(?) culture lifespan i think, so im going to need to buy new food.
im considering protein jelly because its cheap( 1 euro for a bag(idk how much is in a bag)).
i found a site where they sell things for almost free ant honey only cost 1 euro for a small bottle
enough to fill the liquid feeder 3 times(?), and they gave lasius niger for free
(for 20 eurocents only payed for the test tube bc lasiys is everywhere).

ants are doing good...


not posting much because not much interesting is hapening.

ants like new nest?

the ants look like they like the new nest they are everywhere in the nest now.
on the beginning they where all near the queen. it also feels like they have more workers when they moved in thier hybrid nest mini they where with about 18 workers now around 20-30(?(didnt count)).


question: does the hibrid nest have some sort of heating?

From AntsCanada no but it does have a hole that you can run a heating cable through.
