      ANTSCANADA!!!! sorry for the shouting and for the late comment but I would advise if it’s not possible to move the golden and Phoenix empire to the Antiverse 2.0 you should select a new queen from both ant families and rebuild off them kinda like a new generation kinda thing

    There might be a way to just transplant the queen into a travel container, have a new setup from the old colony. Like taking a twig off your parents tree that you used to play on as a kid, and growing it in your back yard into a new mature tree. It'll be hard, but honestly, the Yellows and the Fire ants were awesome to watch, so keping part of the colony to grow out would be a great option

    so here's the thing, as happy as I am for your success, you've previously said how u wonder about the environment. and yet your new home seems to be built in an area made near or in the forest, aka human encroachment.🤨 soo...either you worry about the future of your country's natural environments disappearing or you are part of the problem. or am i seeing things differently? are you building using sustainable practices in an already developed area or are u just pretending now that you have a lot a wealth?

    Are you able to have the colonies move into a smaller enclosure for transportation? Just as a temporary thing, but connect a medium enclosure and make the current terrariums uninhabitable so they move on just as you would building them a new set up?

  42. Eean360

    A possible solution would be moving them bit by bit? Until u can get them all the way there or another solution is maybe attempt to temporarily rehouse them in a smaller tank ik it will cause alot of stress making them go in a smaller tank and then back again but it might work

    Saving your large set-ups... I think you're going to need to transfer the colonies into something more portable. What if you created an easier-to-move set-up, connected the big terrariums, and then started feeding in the easier-to-move set ups? Then you gradually lower the humidity and other aspects of your existing set-ups to make it less desirable, forcing the ants to move. You can then transfer all the other things in the terrariums that make them fragile, and pack them up tight for moving. After you move, try doing the same thing in reverse, making the beautiful terrarium set-ups more desirable. Would something like that work? I don't know, but it's the best I could think of.

    An indoor balcony is called a mezzanine. This isn't a correction, because calling it a balcony makes sense too, it's just that I think mezzanine is a really fun word, and wanted to share it.

    god that made me cry. I'm known as the weird bug person at school, always talking about bugs, collecting dead ones, and missing class just to save a little tiny bug from the halls where I know they'll be stepped on. I've never really cared about what others think, but my lack of friends can be painful sometimes. I'm in my senior year of highschool, very tired and struggling as a neurodivergent person in a neurotypical system, but I'm determined to graduate and then put myself back in this exhausting school system to go to college and earn atleast a bachelors degree in entomology. I always thought I would never go to college because middle school and high school we're already hell and I thought there was no way I would willing put myself back in school, but once I learned I could make a living off of my passion I was sold. I'm so passionate about these amazing creatures, I don't care if I go through an even worse hell if it means I can live the rest of my life as an entomologist surrounded by the creatures I love

    With the Golden horde and Pheonix empire, couldn't you just relocate them into a smaller tank for the purposes of the move, it may be difficult for the ants to adjust but they are resilient and it could be worth doing.
