AntsNational The Cube
The Cube is also an AntsNational original product, stemming back to 2007. Since then, approximately 1,800 units of this product has been sold. The Cube is excellent for enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels. This product is designed for founding queens and very small colonies, similar to the dram nest. This product is excellent for newcomers into the hobby!
Dimensions 80mm x 80mm x 76mm
This formicarium is designed for small sized colonies. The hydration system in this formicarium is best suited via misting once per week. This ant farm features a 4-sided view on all sides as well as an added “bottom view” of the main chamber for when you wish to observe the colony in the center of the nest. Condensation can accumulate in this nest so it is always recommended that the extra bag of loose sand is poured onto the surface of the foraging area in small amounts to control humidity.
This nest is NOT connectable to other formicariums as it is too small to drill into without cracking. The Cube fits inside all of our available larger formicaria for an easy transfer by opening the lid and placing it on it's side into a larger formicarium.
It is also recommended to line 1 to 2 cm from the top on all sides with a thin slick of vegetable oil or fluon.
