Make sure that you did some research for building an ant colony, it is not that easy to take good care of ants.
Also, welcome to the community.

I'd actually say that raising ants is a very easy and quite un-time-consuming venture.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
