Funny you should mention tubes. Rachel has queens in test tubes and some are attached to this maze like colony thing with clear windows. It was pretty interesting how she cultivates the colonies.
Personally I would rather see these critters out in their habitat. But then, I'm not a 'pet' person anyway. Having ants and spiders and snakes just sitting around isn't for me. Sure, they're cool to look at, but that would get old for me after a few days.
