I have my Pheidole Californica colony in a Mini Labyrinth at the moment. While they haven't grown out of it (I am maintaining them currently, not giving them as much food), things have gotten pretty soiled in there, so I want to get a new nest to cycle them into. What do you guys think would be my best bet? I am mainly looking at another Tarheel ants formicarium, but any other suggestions would be appreciated!

I already have one, so I was looking to get something different.

The labyrinth line of nests is one of the best for pheidole in my experience. If the colony still hasnt outgrown it, I’d recommend a fallen fortress.
