Is this a good setup for Pavement Ants?

At some point later down to road you might want to attach another nest to become a satellite nest, another hybrid or an ant-tower would do great for this purpose.

I was thinking about that too. I will probably use a small deluxe ant tower. Thank you for the advice

Just so you know, the small Deluxe is the same tower, It just comes with a small Pipet, a small magnifying glass, and a red light. That's the only add-ons. I've bought both the normal and deluxe before.

Oh... Thank you for telling me that! :D Now I do not have to spend the extra money as I already own most of that extra stuff.
