some questions

Three questions: first, is a 10 gallon tank good for pavement ants? Second, how would I water plants in a naturalistic setup without flooding the colony, third, how do I prevent ants from climbing up silicon sides.

1: depends on how big the colony is
2: water sparingly with a syringe
3: tetramorium ants are really bad at climbing vertically
