Cool set up. That is a queen you have.
Keeping:
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula

Do you think there would be enough space for the ants?

Nice setup! What are the dimensions? And which species did you chose?

I have designed a setup for my carpenter ants which has similar features. Would love to hear how your ants fare in theirs
