So final finish the building of my setup. It has 4 test tube hook ups and 2 tubes leading to the nest. Nest is 20in x 16in made with 2 panels of glass with sand. Top of the nest is vented with a fine wire mesh. I will be covering the nest with felt to make it dark and allow for viewing. It will be hanging from two hooks attached to the glass. It's still going to be while for the ants get to move in.

It's beautiful, just make sure your ants can climb the tubing, especially the queen. Besides that I think they will love it.
