thats a really cool idea but beware of this sand as it seems to be really unstable; the queen need to make a nest under the sand to make some eggs, and all yr ants will try to drill galleries under this sand ; because this sand is unstable you will have to be really carefull and place the fish bowl in a place with no vibrations at all , because if the galleries collapse yr queen can die :/

Vapor rub works also all you really need it petriulium jelly at the top inch my colony made pretty big tunnels

Nice idea! Probably a better habitat for the ants than those usual narrow any farms
