Hi AC Fam. Sorry for the terrible quality on this one, the condensation is making it difficult to get a good shot since I'm also in the process of trying to get them to change their test tube, which is also why I'm finally trying to get an ID on this species. I was thinking they are tetramorium since the queen seems to have those little spikes between her thorax and gaster, but the shot doesn't really pick it up too well. The ants are also quite small, which was my second *****. If anyone can confirm or give me a better guess, please do! I'm so excited to finally have a small colony forming.

Tetramorium fits, but we'll need clear photos for an accurate ID.
Ants kept
Nylanderia sp.
Camponotus sp.
