Lots of luck with them! I think they are one of the hardest ants to keep.
What kind of setup you were planning for them?

A 2ft tank to start with as it will be a smaller colony that expected, there will be a natural ytong nest and a layer of soil for humidity purposes :)

Wow! They are one of my dream species. Too bad they aren't native to where
I live.
