Hello everyone, I'm very new to ant keeping, that is I've never done it before, but am seriously considering getting my hands into it when I finish uni and go back to Malaysia...
Anyways, I don't see many Malaysian ant keeping forums up regarding ant keeping, and cant find many pet shops or websites about this too, so hopefully the Malaysian users would help point me in the right direction(I live in Selangor/KL area). Also, this is one of the species in Malaysia, one that I've seen before in my hiking trips and probably might use. Camponotus Gigas or the Malaysian Giant Ant. To give an idea of how it looks like size wise, heres a photo:
Basically what I'm curious about is the size of the formicarium I would need to keep something like this. The ant in the picture is a worker I believe (more or less match the ants I've encountered a long time ago).
Also if you guys have any suggestions for ant species that is more suitable for beginners, send them my way.
