What ants are being housed in this setup?
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

I'd love to see a video of the colony in this setup if you have one in it yet, awesome stuff. I like that you connected the two outworlds directly, probably makes for cool little "ant highways".

Set up is a bit big. I mean like that setup could house a few hundred ants. If I were u I would make a smaller set up. But overall, it's quite a good set up.
