Hey, I want to keep ants but not just in a normal way .I would like to make my Formicarium out of LEGO. I am well on the way but my main question is how high should the living space be of the ants ?

It depends if you're making an outworld or a nest. Love the idea by the way.

If you're making an outworld, It could be any where from 8inch to a foot and a half.

If you're making a nest, there should be no more than an inch from top to bottom.

What are you using for the top of the nest so you can see them? also I would not try using really small ants so be careful. I would love to see how the hydration system works, and how you connect it to tubes.

Sounds really cool be sure to keep us updated
