I used to but they always seemed to die for some reason. I don't keep them anymore, but they were pretty cool while I had them.
My 5 crabs: Dilly (purple pincher, medium-small), Flame (purple pincher, medium), Fleck (purple pincher, medium), Bubbles (blueberry, medium-large), Indigo (blueberry, large-extra large).

I kept some sugar ants a while back for a school project. I am no expert, but I did learn a lot from that project. The thing about ants is that you need a fertilized queen to keep replenishing the colony or it will simply die slowly (like mine did). They are definitely fascinating! I loved watching a bunch of them huddle around a single water droplet to drink, or their slow progress digging a tunnel in the farm I had. I'm sure someone will come along with more experience than me. :)
One amazing PP: Jarvis, who has been with me since 7/14/18, and is now chilling in a 29 gallon tank!
And two cats: Beanie and Delia

I'm still pretty new to this and I'm trying to learn all I can!

Never mind about not keeping ants anymore! I got more! If you want to learn about ant keeping I'd really recommend AntsCanada on youtube.

Yeah that youtube act is what got me interested in ant keeping in the first place. Definitely a cool channel
