Apparently, the ants like the water chamber better than the dirt. They hung out in the dirt for a while, but after they discovered the chamber with the wet paper towel, they all moved there instead. It's just as well - I can see the ants better this way.

You can clearly see the queen in this shot, and how much larger she is than the other ants.

Here's a couple of videos of the ants in the water chamber.

I may rename the water chamber to the breeding ground or something, as it's not really a chamber for water anymore.
