Formiculture came online on September 10th of 2013!

To celebrate Formiculture's anniversary I am holding a draw to give away a handmade formicarium.

The downside is that I don't have any unused formicariums on hand - sorry! But I do have two that are very clean, only having been used for about 2 months before the colonies outgrew them (perhaps we will consider them tested and true?).

 

There will be one winner who will have a choice of one of the following:  
A 5x7" firebrick formicarium   (https://flic.kr/p/2aKZasw)
A 3.5"x3" firebrick formicarium (https://flic.kr/p/285xL9q)
Five 18mm x 150mm test tubes and an ant keeping kit (hummingbird nectar, mini spoon for mixing, mechanical syringe, waterer, brush and scoop for cleaning).  (https://flic.kr/p/M5qbDa)
 
The person who wins the draw will only have to pay shipping.  Shipping is very likely between $15-25, but feel free to ask for a quote (please provide your country, state/province, and postal code when asking).

If you wish to be included in the draw, please reply to this thread and include something like "Count me in" or "Please include me".  
The last day to join the draw is October 15th, 2018!   (Midnight according to Mountain Time)

I will use https://www.random.org/lists/ to pick the winner.
