Whatever it is, it doesn’t seem very practical to me. Observation seems limited with those opaque balls, and how would you hydrate it? More connecting points also means more escape opportunities for certain species.

Yeah the hydration and food is my main concern.

That looks like some kind of kids toy. I wouldn’t use it, it will probably kill your ants.
