Has anyone tried vacuum forming a formicarium?
I was thinking of making a formicarium that hangs on the wall. Instead of the opaque walls and a flat transparent cover I was wondering how it would look if you had a flat wall and then vacuum formed tunnels onto it.
I realize the plastic wouldn't be as clear as museum glass but you would be able to see below, above and the side of your ants.
humidity would be handled by the wall. I already have a water pump that drips water to another project --- I could make the wall hollow/sponge, has some tiny holes / mesh into where tunnels are, pump water to the top allowing it to drip down and even hide all the tubing in the wall.
What are you folks thoughts?
