Pogonomyrmex don't do the best in plastic or acrylic nests to my knowledge. If you want to use a similar horizontal nest for pogonomyrmex I would try a tar heel ants labyrinth or fallen fortress.

Colony wish list:

Lasius latipes
Temnothorax pilagens
Temnothorax Americanus
Myrmica semiparasitica
Any formica microgyna group sp.

How do they do in plaster nests?? Any knowledge on that because i moved them into one last week.

Yeah, the only thing is plaster molds fast, so be keen on that

There is a important time for everything, important place for everyone, an important person for everybody, and an important ant for each and every ant keeper and myrmecologist alike
