This was the update on 3/29/15 that I posted on Formiculture.com.
So today I moved the colony into their new home! I took pictures so here they are.
The original group of ants I placed in there first did great and no
deaths so everything was good to go. I placed their old nest into the
tank and removed the glass. They went nuts, I wished I recorded a video
but I didn't. D:
The glass had alot of brood stuck to it, but I took this picture after they had already removed them.
*Sound of trumpets* The first queen has arrived!
As soon as the first queen arrived, the workers were like yup this is
our new home. They created a trail and started the big move.
Bringing in the brood.
Second queen arrives.
More brood and the third queen.
More queens and another chamber being filled with brood.
Almost done, but there's still brood left in the old nest, and more queens.
And finally all moved in.
The old nest was almost packed and in their new nest they only fill a
part of it. Shows how big this nest is, but I'm sure they'll outgrow it
really quick. It was awesome seeing them move, but I'm bummed I didn't record a
video. I was too caught up observing them and in between that, too busy
taking pictures. Anyway hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Here are pictures of them when I gave them a large drop of honey
water. They were really craving some energy after that big move. Look at
that pile of workers! That’s like trying to bob for apples while other
people stand on you lol.
Here’s a picture of workers in the process of dragging and holding
onto a cricket from a tree branch I placed in their foraging area.
And then they’ve started to customize one of the entrances with sand from the foraging area.
Just a couple pictures and I hope you guys enjoy them! I'll be making videos of the colony too, so look out for those in future
