Shorter from floor to ceiling.  Still includes stalactites and the same floor and ceiling space. This version of the Mini Hearth is designed for small and smaller species such as Acorn ants, Monomorium spp., Solenopsis molesta, Brachymyrmex spp., Pheidole spp., Prenolepis imparis and many others who may find cavernous rooms too spacious for their liking.  Other options for these tiny ants are Inception Chamber formicaria found on our Founding formicaria and Type III nest pages.

Small ants such as Lasius spp., Solenopsis invicta, Tetramorium sp. (pavement ants) and some others also do well in Standard Mini Hearth setups. These ants do well in acclimating to larger spaces.
