Nest Size limiters for Hybrid Nest 2.0

Since the new hybrids are coming out and are so large, I think, for smaller colonies there should be a feature with "sliding doors" like the vertical omni, except you only have to push them down to close it, it may include clear plugs when done with the feature. Make it an optional feature please, just a suggestion.
;)

EDIT: I'm only saying this since the small hybrid is so much smaller and people may not want to buy two hybrids, just buy the big one and upsize the nest as you go
Hibernating: (all)

Parasitic Lasius:2

Founding:
Tetramorium Immigrans:2

Colonies:
Tetramorium Immigrans:1
Formica Spp:3 3-6 workers each no visible brood

I'm new to ant keeping so my colonies are all still in test tubes. :roll: :?

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately adding in any sort of sliding door or movable parts to open up or close off certain portions of the nest is beyond the design of this version of Hybrid Nest. We will be offering one generic nest design that is smaller to accommodate starter colonies. But of course, this doesn't help people who just want to buy one nest. It's the best we can do for now ;)
