Expanding Ant Farm Formicarium Nest in White or Brown
NEW screw less design & Heating Module for Heater Cables now included! (Heater is not actually included, the module for housing the heater is)
With our current workload we will require up to 7 days prior to shipping.
This new modification also allows for easier acrylic top removal for better cleaning when needed. We have also upgraded our triple layer mesh to include a layer of SUPER FINE SS Mesh for the absolute smallest species of ants!
Fully assembled measure just about 4.75"" square and 1.5" high
EXPANDABLE! This formicarium is designed to grow as your colony grows. Start off with just the main compartment until your colony grows. Slide out the partition without any disruption to the colony to access either the whole left side or the lower right portion. Then as they grow even more open the third compartment for the full nest access.(plugs included to seal up the outer nest walls as partitions removed)
Each nest kit comes complete with the following as shown in one of the pictures above:
Base & Drawer - This area houses the lower entrance to the nest as well as a sliding drawer to place your cotton balls or whatever you like giving you full control over the the humidity levels of the nest.
Expandable Nest with slide out partitions and plugs - remove the full partitions as your colony grows and replace them with the plugs
Lid - to give the ants privacy and darkness
Triple Reinforced Mesh Bottom - Not just a single or double but TRIPLE protection from escapes and cotton pulling from below. Allows the humidity to flow freely into the nest.
Caps - 2 caps come with the nest for each entrance in case you want to close everything off.
"Queen" Adapter & Water Tube - This adapter attaches to the upper entrance so the new queen can have her test tube home attached and can enter the nest when ready. Once released into the nest this tube acts as the colony water supply. You just need to put a small amount of cotton at the base of the adapter to allow the water to come through without dripping.
Both entrances to the formicarium are sized to fit the standard 1/2" outer diameter tubing most commonly used in the hobby. Also the test tube is of common size also used by others in the hobby.
Also available with Habitat - with or without decorations. Check our other listings
We are constantly upgrading and tweaking our designs as we discover new ideas to make them better. Some of those ideas have come from our customers as well. Sometimes our pictures do not reflect these little changes but none of them will alter the design of the nest in any major way so what you see in the pictures is still very close to what you will receive.
The colors may vary slightly due to a few things like camera, lighting, internet browsers, monitor display of color and sometimes our supply of materials can change shades and hues.
