50-100 is my estimate. If you think the colony is big enough to move in and not waste space then I would say its ok. you could also put substrate in there so they can dig out new chambers when ready but you might not be able to see them.

3 tetremorium queens
2 C. pennsylvanicus
1 C novaeboracensis
1 tapinoma sessile colony
