Has anyone used a formicarium from Ants Russia? They have some pretty cool looking setups like this one.  Was just curious if anyone has been able to get a hold of one and what you thought of it and how you got it.



Currently keeping Tetramorium sp in THA mini hearth and Camponotus pennsylvanicus in test tube setup.

I bought one of the acrylic (X8 maybe) nests/outworlds before the English website went down and hasn't come back up. My Tetramorium were able to get out of the nest.. and later found their way out of the outworld. Now that I have glued the seams in the outworld I love it, but I tossed the nest. I could never get the hydration to work. It was two test tubes that attached to one side of the nest and has some water gel that it supposed to slowly pull water out of the test tubes and stay hydrated for a week or more.

After the English website went down, I used my web browser to translate the Russian site and ordered a different nest and another outworld. It never arrived, I never got a shipping notification and their customer service says it showed delivered, so no refund. I'm willing to believe it's my fault and I ordered it wrong on a poorly translated site that I wasn't supposed to be ordering through though. I hope if they did ship it and it got delivered to a random person, that they found out what it was and now has an awesome colony. lol
