Purely for novelty sake and my over all dream species and it's honestly only because of its common name, Pirate Ants descovered in the Philippines. In 2013 I think but do not quote me on that. They are a goldish and white with eye patches. They are pirates :D
Cardiocondyla Pirata

And of course a massive pirate themed vivarium.
If we got a single import pass they would be my go to

What do you know? Yesterday was Crematogaster nuptial day, I found 6 de-alates on my front porch but only took 3, that is the most I can keep realistically, I think. :D

Mystrium. Any species is fine.
