need help

i know you probably get this a lot, but I'm new at this and would like help with what to get, i have a budget of 100 pounds and want ants which don't usually cause any problem and are easy to care for, what type of ants would you suggest and what would you recommend me to buy,

anther question, what temperature range do i need to keep the ants in because i don't want to cook them or freeze them to death. if there is any video you would also want to hyper link it and put it in your response to help me for a demonstration of how to set everything up that would be a great help.

many thanks, Alex

Lasius niger are easy to care for and are probably common in your area. And depending on where the ants are from, around room temperature is probably fine.
Hope this helps

with just a test tube, Tubaware container some feeder insects(you can breed your own) and some baby powder you could do fine. ants are generally low cost pets if you want them to be.
