Moving A Big Colony Into A New Setup!
Not really what you expect to see as our first article but i thought that what the heck my colony has grown out of its home now.[I started with four i think it was January 12/2010 and now have about 50 individuals all cramped up in a small baby food jar.I have ceased feeding and will feed them today when i move them into a new home.

Now here is the plan.I'm gonna move them out by hand and place all of them into a tube with cotton on one end and the other wide open.Add in some food.Next i'll place into a kritter keeper[haven't decided on this yet may just move them into a tube and make bigger tubes as the colony grows not to sure.] To help make your colonies move faster add the food into the new setup and then make it darker.Its almost 100% possible they will move in less then 24 hours if not within the hour.They love the darkness and prefer it like 100% more then light.Anyway i'll surely post how this goes and maybe make a journal about my colony here.Toodles!
