First Formicarium... thoughts?

Hi Guys,

First ever formicarium for my Lasius Niger. Made from AAC, Perspex lid, non-toxic acrylic paint, non toxic blu-tac (although will be replacing with magnets. 3 x watering holes to keep the nest humid. 2 x entrance holes. I’m assuming we’re all good?
I’ll be honest, really like how the paint job came out and apparently it locks in the moisture as well.
Thoughts guys? Thanks
