Help choosing a nest

I have recently captured a few Pheidole sp. (big headed ant) queens. I am ordering an outworld and I hope to move one of them into it in the next few months, but I also want to give them a nest. I know they like moisture, but I don't know much else about them or how much they like tunnels or chambers. Any advice?

so you think any of these would be fine for pheidole? I want to give them a hybrid nest they will definitely enjoy.

After further research it looks like pheidole have been known to enjoy the Solenopsis hybrid nest, and it offers the most humidity aside from the Myrmica nest. I think I'll go with that one. Thanks
