So my Camponotus subbertus queen laid her eggs and they hatched! but her ants are laying down in this liquid stuff and they aren't moving anymore I'm worried that something has happened please tell me if I did something wrong.

We are going to need pics to help you
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.

Bad pics are better than no pics.

i would guess the test tube is partially flooded and you ants are either dead or just not moving because it is hard to when they are stuck on the tube.
