Other than seeds what should I offer my p californicus colony once the workers start emerging? I’m currently offering the queen a vial of water a vial of sugar water and some dill/fennel seeds, I have the base outworld in a 5$ critter keeper but once they get large enough I’ll move them to a 20GL tank. Any advice is appreciated!

I have one and they do work for housing a betta, raising fry, or a hospital tank. The one I have holds approximately 1 and 2/3 gallons of water. It is the medium sized critter keeper. I use a hydor mini heater. It says it works on 2-5 gallon, but it does fine here too. A tetra air pump handles the air/filtration part. I wouldn't recommend it for long term use of standard tropical fish. But as a betta home it would be fine.
