I have bought tubing that are 6mm big for my iridomyrmex ants. they are quite small so do you think its ok?
"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." Proverbs 6:6-8

8x Iridomyrmex sp.
1x Pheidole sp.

the tubing should at least allow for 2 way traffic in the tubing. Also the tubing needs to be bigger than the queen. if the tubing is 6mm in inside diameter it should be OK just a little roomy.
