Now they're at 22 workers. I haven't fed them in almost 2 weeks because I've been busy. Last time I fed them I fed them like 5 mealworms. They were only lasting on their reserves until I fed them today.

Ok something really insterestig has happened while I was at school today. My colony finally moved out of their old test tube. Well kind of. 2/3rds of the colony has the queen and half the workers and most of the brood in a new setup I gave them yesterday to act as their water drinking source.

They barely even have any space and are right up against the foraging area so I don't know why they chose this spot compared to the other test tube setup I offered them that is actually sealed off with cotton and a straw and is more private. The other 1/3rd of the colony is in their old setup right at the entrance of the outworld guarding the rest of the brood. I bet you when I feed them they're gonna freak out and realize that this wasn't the best spot to put their brood lol.

Also I'm pretty sure that one more worker has hatched making 23 workers in total

And I'm so glad to have finally removed their old moldy setup that I first got them in. This is a big milestone for me lol.

What camera/phone do you use to take your photos? They're nice!

I feel like these pictures are actually horrible for a 30$ macro lens that I got at a discount price for 11$ off amazon. When you twist the lens on to the camera it doesn't even stick on. You start twisting it and it stays slightly on, but if you twist it some more it just comes right off. It falls off a lot. Also I'm using an iPhone SE lol
