Is this intended to be a Founding setup/ alternative to the test tube setup?
Founding:
3 Solenopsis I/X
5 Tapinoma sessile
1 Nylanderia terricola/vivulda

Colonies:
1 Brachymyrmex patagonicus
1 Pheidole soritis
1 Tapinoma sessile

The difference between a hobby and a scientific pursuit, is detailed notes.

yeah i guess, or a formicarium to a large colony of a smaller species or a small colony of a larger species.

the test tube could be a nest, and the plaster thing could be an outworld for semi claustral queens
