Aus Ants formicariums are made from Ytong, autoclaved aerated concrete, a backing plate of marine-grade plywood, attached using non-toxic epoxy, with a removable acrylic front plate, secured with screws. Painted with an eco friendly paint.
The nest requires water every 3 to 6 days. To reduce the risk of nest flooding, moisten the sponge slowly so that the water can be absorbed by the sponge. The Ytong is porous, absorbing water from the sponge and hydrating your nest.
This formicarium is suitable for housing a colony in the range of 30 to 400 ants depending on the species size. It can be utilised for small or medium species of ants and it is considered to be a good sized formicarium for a mature ant colony.
