So as my colonies grow, I have started to experiment with making formicariums. My primary materials will be hydrostone and firebrick. Obviously, I am not going to be making works of art, such as Tarheel Ants, byFormica, or even dspdrew. Also, I do not plan on selling. This thread will show the finished products, and not document things in between as Drew's formicarium threads. This may change in the future. My first formicariums will probably be garbage, but I have 38 pounds of hydrostone, so I have plenty to test with. Anyway, I will be organizing my "creations" into various levels. The breakdown is:
- Tier (T)
- Version (V)
- Modification (M)
The tier (T0-T5) is the size of the colony the project is meant for, T0 being test tube alternatives for lone queens, T1 being for queens with their first workers, to T5, for massive and mature colonies. The version number is the specific project or design, and the mod number is the number for additional modifications for the base design.
