I am fairly new to this forum community and thought I would ask you guys for some advice for a new formicarium build. In about one week and a half I will be receiving my Pheidologeton Diversus queen with some brood, and I can't seem to decide what material and setup I want to use. I am new to the Pheidologeton Diversus and thought it would be a new challenge.
I am however experienced in making formicariums from plaster of paris, gypsum (hydrostone, tuf stone), autocalved aerated concrete (a.k.a ytong), and some unsanded grout/perlite mixed.
My experiences with ants are limited to:
Camponotus Pennsylvanicus &
Now my question I have for you guys, considering I am faily new to the Pheidologeton Diversus and the fact that I can not get enough information in regards to what "type" of material is best for them, what do you guys suggest would be the best plan of action based on your experiences? I was thinking a tank setup or a upright setup connecting to a separate foraging area etc...
