I'm thinking about getting a Ant Tower Large Deluxe for my Havester ants. Does anyone have this sort of combination and do you have to heat it?

What Substrate to use and what to put in the watering base?? I was thinking Cotton wool.

ANy ideas pictures would be great.

I think that would work for a while but I think you may have to attach more nests in the future. But I'm not even close to a messor ant keeper at all so hear from other people first. I think cotton would work.
