Question Fish Tanks and Ants?

I haven't been on here in over two months. O.O! On that note, I have moved back in with my parents and we've always had an ant problem leading to my next question.
I have those small black ants creating a trail from the trim in my room all the way across to my fish tanks. My tank that has no filter on it looks like a pool party. My tanks with a filter has them in the filter and they're playing king of the floating Betta logs.
I would love to avoid poison because I have 2 dogs, one who loves hanging out with me and is notorious for getting into things he shouldn't.

Best way to fix this situation?

As for an update, I only have Urkle, Durban, Apollo, and Pistachio left. I left Odin with my ex-boyfriend, and Dutch passed away Monday. :'( However, just 2 fish tanks is nice.

Ants wont cross a chalk line... :3 It worked with my house!

Or get some natural-based ant traps, ones where they use this special kind of sugar that kills just ants, they eat it, bring it back...and kill the others! >:D Til then, put saran wrap on the tank with holes in there to prevent them from falling in as much.

These!! :D We use them inside and out. Keep away from what youre trying to protect, though, because for a while they'll flock to it.. Ew.
