Moving an ant colony

Hello. I have an ant colony in a test tube set up and the water is almost gone within the tube. The test tube is not an AC test tube but larger than the ones sold on the AC store. i am trying to move them into a hybrid nest but the tube is much larger than the holes for the hybrid nest. Does anyone have any ideas on how to move them?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a nice day.

Sticky tack iit to the nest and slip something under the tube to keep it flush so gravity doesn't pull the tack away
Ants are life's most successful invaders. Understand and respect that power.
