That's great, I though it could be too/less moist or small and it's the only nest I have at the moment

If you think it's too dry you can always add some sand-clay mix to the bottom and the sides of the chambers. But you have to be careful when watering cause it's an extremely good water conductor and will spread it through the entire nest. Perfect for ants that love it really really moist, like many Myrmica species.
