Ant Farm/Terrarium

Hi all,

I am beginning to give consideration to jumping into ant keeping and have been looking at farm/terrariums. I am wondering, in designs like the cylinder design in the latest AC video, why is there that great big space in the middle? i am guessing this might be for temperature regulation?

Ta

Lisa.

Hi it forces the ants to form there tunnels on the outside so you can observe them :D

True but where's the fun with seeing no ants in there nest lol it's easy enough to connect another nest onto the tower after !
