Nvm I looked into it more and while Solonopsis queens are a very dark red pheidole dentata queens are a light red except for their gaster which is a dark almost black shade of red also Solonopsis queens have segmented gasters while pheidole dentata queens have one exoskeleton for their gaster

So should I keep some pheidole queens and also since they r polygynous should I keep them in groups of 2-3
