                                  The bioactive set up is more health beneficial for the ants so the real question becomes what are you more concerned about?? Their health or how they look

I have a shaded porch so they wouldn't have to live in direct sunlight. If anyone has advice please reply.

But your bioactive terrariums are a big part of why I started watching. It's like seeing them in a more natural habitat, and seeing how they react to the environment and how the environment reacts to them.

                                                                                  But if you ever decided to make it easier on yourself and move to simpler colonies, I'd be okay with that too. It's ant love all the same. Please do what suits you best. <3
