Tetramorium Hybrid Nest or Formica Hybrid nest 2.0? (also pehraps an Omninest)

Hello!

Now that I've finally convinced my parents to let me do antkeeping (and not a moment too late if I might add) I must decide what pack to buy (the ones mentioned on the title) so some pointers would be useful

The species I want to keep are quite varied because I do not even have a clue of the ants in Mexico, but anyways

They are the Tetramorium sp E (the preference), any Camponotus spp, any Crematogaster spp, or any Pheidole spp

Since I am new to antkeeping some pointers to the species I mentioned would be very useful

Thanks!
Housing two Camponotus Barbarus Queens!

Also FOUR Solenopsis xyloni Queens! (if you want to, check the journal!)

Tetramorium would most likely be the easiest to care for as a beginner. They will eat most anything.

i would first find ants and then buy the set up. it might take a while for a colony to get big enough to live in one.

some tips would be never catch wild insects and leave your queens alone in the founding stage :D ;)
keeper of
3 tetremorium queens
2 C. pennsylvanicus
1 C novaeboracensis
1 tapinoma sessile colony
!!And A CREMATOGASTER QUEEN!!

At first I would have argued with that statement, because my Tetramorium colony was very, very picky. Then I discovered they were most likely Pheidole.
