When I buy formicariums I like to see pictures of ants in them. It’s just reassuring. But pictures, please. Everybody loves pictures.

Nests are coming soon. I will try to get some pics of some C. chromaiodes in one though when I get them back in stock.

Please remove the ships nationwide from post title. As 1. you don't, and 2. violates rule #8 of the forums:

 

 

 

8. Members must accurately represent their location in their Member Profile to participate in offers to buy, sell, trade, or otherwise distribute living ants of any caste or life stage. For members located in the United States, offers of live ants are only permitted between members who reside in the same U.S. state. Cross-border offers are not permitted between any members (participating members must reside in the same country or trading zone).

It is illegal on a boat. It is illegal in your coat.
It is illegal in a plane, car, and train. Why must you be such a pain?
I do not care if it is in your hair. Do not put your queen ants there!

Seems fine to me. He doesn't offer interstate ants.

Ah makes sense. The title is misleading tho, just says now ships nationwide, not what you ship nationwide implying ants and products. See the confusion in the wording?

Do you have the outworlds in clearer boxes? The plastic is kinda opaque, which will make visibility less.

No, I thought about buying some from the Container Store, but turned out to be way more expensive. (I would have to ship them from California.)

Also, does the outworld have a mesh screen ventilation rather than a plain hole?

Yes, normally. That one needs it though. Almost out, so I just took the pic like that.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Also you can use these to make them. They come in bulk, and are petty cheap if you sell a lot of outworlds. An idea though.
You should also sell some formicariums.

I am working on a grout formicarium design, similar to an Atom C.
