*Welcome to my unique take on formicariums to make them a piece of art that ants love*

 

  • Each formicarium takes about a week to make and requires a lot of work and precision 
  • Made with a grout/AAC mixture to create a perfect balance between strength and absorption 
  • Every formicarium has a unique design
  • Each design is first drawn by hand and then carved
  • All formicaria are tested with live ants

 

 

 

Features:

  • Includes sand to maintain moisture 
  • Sponges in the formicarium on each side for moisture
  • Multiple holes for adding water
  • Entrance(s) for tubing or test tube
  • Glass w/o frame

DM if interested

*Will also take pre-order requests of designs if it is possible to make and translates well into a formicarium*
