Yes to both! Founding formicarium, new outworlds, and we also have a cool new test tube design specifically geared for ant keeping. Our new test tube portal (out now) which is now clear and meshless, makes a great starting founding outworld for test tubed colonies!

New Video: We shot what happened when fire ants were forced to deal with a flood. What happened was pretty amazing!

eBay and amazon have the best prices on test tubes and you can get them in any size that's needed. You can also buy then in large lots instead of just a couple at a time because you'll likely break some or end up throwing some away. I for small ones I've been using 13mm x 100mm then the medium ones I use are 16mm x 125mm and the largest ones I use are 25mm x 150mm or sometimes I've seen them in 200mm lengths.

If you're in Europe (specifically in Germany) look for crafting shops (Bastelläden), they all have glas tubes in different sizes and they are pretty cheap. Might be true for US and CAN but no idea, you can try.

I'm not looking to start a fight, but I ordered an ants canada Formica hybrid nest a year ago and about 6 months later I got an email saying they had received it back in the us with not collected stickers on the box. I replied to the email asking if there was a way to send it back or if I got a refund. Never got an answer.
That was my experience.
