As far as actually keeping, Camponotus novaeboracensis is a hope. But I REALLY like Trap-jaws and Australia's Bull ants.
Keep:
3 camponotus pennsylvanicus
2 formica subsericea

Black crazy ants, Paratrechina longicornis, for sure. The fact that they can indefinitely produce and use their own queens is so cool. I have wanted to find a queen for years now, but I can never find one. It would just be so cool to have a colony that makes it's own egg producing queens. Does anyone know when they fly?
Colonies:
--Tetramorium Caespitum
--Camponotus pennsylvanicus
--Formica Sp.

Giant Amazonian ants. I doubt you could actually raise them in captivity if you haven't got say a swimming pool which you could turn into an outworld somehow (without the water obviously)
