Guys how am I supposed to feed my colony that are only housed in a AC hybrid nest?

I believe there is a peice that you can connect with tubes that have a openable top where I could place food but am not sure!

Yes, you can use our Test Tube Portal and some vinyl tubing.

I need help with my hybrid nest. I ordered the all you need pack but I got the wrong hybrid nest. Well it's more like you had the Formica hybrid nest all you need pack listed in Camponotus section on your web store. I didn't realize I ordered the wrong one untill it was too late.

If you need an outworld fast, use a tupperware container with a hole drilled/melted in the side to connect the nest to the outworld with tubing.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Each Hybrid nest can be successfully used for a variety of species, which is why they are listed in various places on our web site. Your Camponotus ants will be perfectly fine in the Formica nest.

True but I'd still rather have the actual camponotus hybrid nest because I know how large they can get. I rather have the space an openings just right for them.
