I just came across a site that sells some very interesting hybrid grout/plastic formicariums. I thought they had some really good ideas, and might try to build something similar myself. 

 

I don't know if any of you have purchased items from them, as they look pretty new.  Anyway, I thought I would share, since they look like good quality.  https://www.poramorart.ca/

I would guess that this site is pretty new because half the items are listed as new but I must say that the quality of the items looks really nice.


Currently Keeping:

 

Camponotus fragillis, Myrmecocystus mexicanus, Acromyrmex versicolor, a load of Tarantulas and 1 Rosy Boa

That looks pretty nice, I don't think I'll get any of their products though. Especially not the FormiFeeder and FormiSyrup because those seem to be direct rip-offs of ByFormica ant feeders, which I use and love.

My thoughts exactly as well. I just wanted to point out their formicarium products, which I thought looked nice.

The FormiSyrup definitely seems like a simple product anyone can make themselves, I guess it is for those who don't want to make their own?? The FormiFeeder does seem to have a different design compared to the byFormica ones specially the plate at the bottom seems to be useful, I do have spills often with the byFormica ones, I discovered them due to this YouTube video that talks about their feeders and some of their formicariums: https://youtu.be/HBkk9jzdi0c
