Hi guys. I'm Zan. I'm from ontario canada and I have become very interested in keeping ants but I am not ready to dive head first.

I have a big fascination for red ants. Yellow ants. The brighter and more transparent the better!

I'm looking for a suggestion! I wish to keep red or yellow polygyne ants. I love the idea of having many queens having babies. It's not that I'm looking to grow a colony as fast as I can I just believe in redundancy and a more diverse set of genetics. So I would really like something I could order a couple of queens of and if I find new gan farmers with it I could order new genetics. I do want something native to my part of the world. I know I'm so picky!

Just some random details that might help you guys, I'm a complete novice and I have a long way to go before I ordered.

I really would like to set a white/light brown sand as the top so they are a little easier to see.
Diet isn't important, nor is size. I am new so something crazy aggressive might not be my best start. I am a horticulturist, daily and weekly different kinds of maintenance is the normally to me so harder up keep isn't an issue but I really dont want something that takes to much work.

I would love to hear everyone's suggestion and I am more then happy to read links related to anything you think I might find interesting.
