Add some fake artifacts then, such as some fake animal skulls, as AntsCanada has done and maybe some ruins.

If you're aiming a bit higher what about something scaled down similar to this?

Maybe you can also add some cacti to make it more alive but depending on what species you'll be introducing keep in mind you may want to protect their roots with some rocks so the ants can't dig and rip them off.

Keeping the following species:

- Messor Barbarus
- Pheidole Pallidula
- Camponotus Barbaricus
- Lasius Niger
- Lasius Flavus
- Lasius Emarginatus
