If you plan to continue creating and sharing .stl formicariums I recommend keeping a journal. All your creations in one spot. 

Also, if you need anyone for IT in that office, I know a guy.

Is it a dry nest?

yeah it's main source of humidity will be from a full test tube (heating will bring moisture into the lower half of the nest)


How's your day?  :)
