if you want you could put the tube in a secure but air-vented container.

Yeah, so what I've heard of as "a tubs and tubes" setup has some sort of tube or tube-like thing for the queen to nest in as well as a small little world for her to hunt in. If you have her in a bright place and it seems that she is agitated you should probably cover the tube. with something.

Ok this is not the place to post it though, try posting in the ant identification center and people will help you there.
