So I'm looking at the various formicaria available for purchase and note a large variety of height of chambers and tunnel sizes.
I see that Tarheel Ants is like the shining star of reccomendations, and their underground chamber's are literally one, seemingly massive chamber. AntsCanada has shorter 'ceilings" on their chambers and tunnels, in his hybrid nests. Other folks have various sizes as well.
I was very worried about this factor when I started building my own formicarium because I had done most of the tunnels already drilled. But seeing all the different versions being so vastly um... different... I'm not as worried about this anymore.
Is there an ideal ratio for ant species? I plan to get two new species in a combined setup and want to give them the best care possible while still being able to see them.
