Ive never kept ants before and i found a calabopsis impressa queen. will this habitat be good for it. I read they're semi claustral so i went ahead and put it in.

It is a good style of out world, the only problem is, she might try to dig in the sand and nest down there. if you are not ok with that, you should try to take out most of the sand and just leave a small sand bottom.

In the branches or sand. I read they make nest in dead branches or twigs

OK, so if that's the spot you want her to nest in, then yes it is a very good formicarium.
