I've caught so many crematogaster, but they are relatively difficult species to keep.

I guess I got lucky. My first crematogaster is the only queen I've had success with so far. All my other queens of all other species ended up dying. I hope my new queen works out.
I'm trying something different with my new crematogaster queen. All my other queens that I collected died when I placed them in a new test tube setup. I checked on my new queen a couple days after putting her in there and she was very unresponsive. I decided to connect her tube to a small outworld similar to my other one. I figure that maybe it's too humid for her in just the stopped up tube. This was about a week ago. As of today she is still alive and appears to be doing well. A couple days ago when I checked on her she was outside the tube in the outworld. Today she was back in the tube again. I placed a fruitfly in there today for her as my first crematogaster seemed to appreciate it. Incidentally, she still has her wings.
We'll have to see where it goes.
Short update. All's good. Not much activity. The first colony is very inactive. I have them in my buffet, not a fridge. Interestingly, the newest workers are still lighter colored even though they eclosed weeks ago. The new queen is still alive. She still has her wings. I placed a couple fruit flies for her but she hasn't touched them. I have fed either otherwise.
