New to the ant world

Hey guys and girls
I have just received a Queen messor barbarus and 7 workers in a test tube set up. I was wondering at what point i should start to give them a few drops of honey and at what point shall i move then to their formicarium. I have a hybrid nest and a medium size out world.
Kind regards

Normally I will offer a drop of honey or a cricket leg around 10-15 Nanitics, and I would only move them to a larger area once they really cant fit into the test tube. If you can give them something a bit larger than a test tube or easily offer them a second test tube for now then move them into the hybrid nest once they are of decent size.
