May is a special month for Arthropod Antics. On this day one year ago, May 13th, the very first Formisquariums were created, marking the beginning of Arthropod Antics as you know it today.
The very first Formisquarium:
After testing the design, I decided that I wanted to make these formicaria accessible to everyone, and committed to launching a store, home to high quality and affordable formicaria for antkeepers all across the country.
As the month went on, I designed a few more products: The Formisquarium XL, Small Outworld, and original Large Outworld. With these four products, I knew I had a lineup of nests that would be suitable for the vast majority of ants, and on May 31st, 2021, Arthropod Antics was officially launched.
In the year since the first Formisquarium was made, hundreds of ant colonies have been able to call an Arthropod Antics setup home, and many more products have been released to suit the needs of nearly any ant you can think of, from fungus growers to honeypots, or from Camponotus to Strumigenys.
To celebrate the anniversary of the Formisquarium, and Arthropod Antics as a whole, I have a few exciting announcements:
First of all, Red Sand is now available as a customization option! You now have the option to make your nests even fancier, with plaster dyed red, accompanied with a layer of ultra-fine red sand. This option is also available for the Vertical and Natural Formisquarium lineups!
Secondly, you may now customize outworlds with both white and red sand in the customization menu!
And lastly, to show my appreciation to all of you for a year of continued support, Coupon Code "Anniversary25" is active from now until May 31st, for 25% off all orders over $30 (subtotal).
Thank you once again to everyone for supporting Arthropod Antics, whether you've been here since the start or have just found us recently, we thank you and hope you continue to use and enjoy our formicaria for years to come.
