Polyrhachis Ammon and Rufifimer

Hey I was looking into setting up a All-in-One formicarium for Polyrhachis Ammon and Rufifimer, and was wondering what kind of habitat they prefer or thrive in and if they need lots of digging medium?

Pheidole Sp. Habitat

So ive done some research, and species of pheidole live in harsh conditions like the Sonoran Desert, but at the same time they are living in my garden and my driveway pavement. So I made a all-in-one formicarium in a fish tank (60cm long x 35cm wide x 35cm tall). https://imgur.com/a/VXZmUnv with a o...
