More hybrid nests

I am suggesting that AntsCanada should make more models of hybrid nests. there are groups of ants that can't really live in the hybrid nests. Like:
Pseudomyrmex and other arboreal ants: (ants that live in the canopy) these ants require tight spaces and cylindrical chambers they are not really acepting of many of the AC hybrid nests

Monomorium: this might not need a hyrbid nest but I think antkeepers could use a possible acrylic or hybrid nest for the tiny ants like Monomorium sp. and Solenopsis sp. (theif ant genuses)

Neivamyrmex and other rapidly mobilizing ants many genuses of ants are kept around the world that like to mobilise and rotate and require large chambers everywhere they move (this might not need a new nest)

Polyergus and other slave raider ants it would be cool if you could make a double nest with dividers or something that could allow for ant keepers to keep slave raiding and parasitic ants

We currently have version 2.0 of our Formica Hybrid Nest. We are planning on making version 2.0 or our other 6 nest models as well. Three of the more popular ones (Lasius, Tetramorium, and Camponotus) are already in the works. In the end, it has to come down to a business decision though.Would there be enough interest in other models, like the ones you suggest, to make business sense?

We definitely appreciate everyone's suggestions, so thank you! We are expecting 2018 to be a great year for AntsCanada and have other ideas in the works as well.
