yo these ant nests are cheap! wonder if any would be good for camponotus. they look rather small.
That video up there is housing a Messor barbarus colony, which have some fairly big majors and the queen is fairly large as well.
I've seen some of the other horziontal nests house Camponotus consobrinus, which are one of the largest ants we have here
But if you have a lot of ants then you would have to get one of the larger nests
The yellow one in this vid can hold Camponotus easy
As seen here
