Where’s the best place to get tubs for a tubs and tubes setup? I have some right now but I’m looking for smaller, better ones. Acrylic would be best but from what I’ve seen they’re pretty expensive.

Is this auto generated? I've seen it on several members. Sorry to stray from the topic of conversation, though.

 

Anyways, I think the aforementioned containers would be ideal, although they are a little small. They definitely should be used for tubs and tubes only, not for large colonies in formicariums.

These are amazing for big outworlds. Not even Crematogaster can get out of the lids.

You could buy some grout and fake plants, decorate them, and sell them as outworlds!

Hobby lobby Sells the display cases for cars and model trucks that are absolutely great. It’s what I use. With their 40% off coupon, it’s a good price too!!
