HELP! ant won't change test tubes!!

I have a tetramorium colonie probably around 20+ ants hard to count them all. Unfortunately their test tube is dry and I have had them connected to another test tube for a while but they don't Wana move at all. Any advice on what to do? Also the cotton is in the way back of their tube so they are really far in there. Should I place a smaller tube in theirs with cotton towards the front of the tube to entice them? Please help this is my fave colonie and don't want them to die.

Try putting a LED light over their tube, but first make the water in the new tube closer to the entrance to enable more water storage.
After that replace the old tube with a sugar water tube if they don't have any yet.
