Does the lid come off, and relatively easily?

Removing the lid is usually the best way to get ants to move out into a larger nest when the time comes

 

 

Can the water tank be refilled with a syringe without lifting the entire nest off?

And at a fairly steep angle for a small outworld.

I kinda need this as it will eventually be inside an outworld with workers.

Lid pops right off, very easily. And the hub has a port for adding water with syringe that all others will come with now. Having it in a outworld with ants having free access to the outside of the nest, I'd recommend plugging the hole for water, otherwise they may get in and drown.

Thanks

 

Looks like shipping will kill me though, if the postage estimate is correct on the website :(
