Aus Ants formicariums are made from Acrylic, consisting of a backing plate of white Acrylic, one layer of clear Acrylic topped by a coloured Acrylic layer, all enclosed with a removable clear Acrylic plate secured with dome screws.
The nest requires water every 2 to 4 days. To reduce the risk of flooding your nest, hydrate the sponge slowly, so that the water can be absorbed by the sponge.
This formicarium is suitable for housing a colony in the range of 30 to 400 ants. It can be utilised for small, medium or large species of ants and it is considered to be a formicarium for a ‘well established’ colony.
