Hello, I've been on the lookout for a vertical ytong nest ( to simulate better how a species of ants I want to catch nests, but still provide some visibilty ) separate from the outworld ( for ease of hibernation, ), for well over a month, and unfortunately I found nothing that would fit into these two categories from any of the ant shops I found: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and I unfortunately lack the skills necessary to make one myself, so I had a question, does anybody know a shop that seels such nests, or should I settle for a horizontal nest or a nest of some other material?


Um, uh, Ants!

A lot of THA nests are magnetically separable from the outworld. THA is also able to make custom modifications to setups or make entirely custom setups. Another option is to take one of the standard Ytong nests and just stand it up on its side. The AusAnts could be good for this, since they're pretty deep and would therefore have a larger surface to stand on. I believe this is actually what he does with his own Leptomyrmex colony.

Hm, does THA ship their nests worldwide?

You could get a type 1 THA fortress.

Yeah tar heel ants has ytong nests, however if you are gonna buy from him, get a type 3 nest. They are so much better.

noted, I'll probably then first buy a mini heart and once they outgrow that move them to a type III casita, I doubt I'll need much more than that, since in the wild, the colonies of ants I'll keep rarely grow larger than 500 ants, and in captivity with no predators to only about 1000 - 2000 ants.
