So throughout the day, we plan on releasing up to 6 new products.  These new products will be alterations to the current acrylic styled nests on our website, however they will have an improved hydration system that will last anywhere from 3 weeks to 1.5 months depending on how heavily the colony uses it.   We are very excited to launch this product, and it is still in the same compact style we like (albeit a little taller) but taking up the same amount of space on a desk, shelf as any of the others do.  After these are launched we will still continue to carry both styles.

Update they are now here!  These nests work much like a test tube, but also with capillary action inside the nest, however unlike other acrylics, the water is restricted to the one chamber and will not slowly creep to fill the entire nest.   To learn more about these nests please visit www.anttopia.com

6x6 Looks great - Love the small footprint, especially for some of us that don't have more space :)

Them look nice. Also, this would be really helpful. I have several insects and archanids to care for in a week. This is just one thing that will make life easier.

Thanks T.C. yes it does make things a lot easier.  :)  Especially if you have a lot to care for.

I've had similar ideas, how is the nest hydrated? The sponge?


Hit "Like This" if it helped.

I prefer the more natural nests but these look very good. Would be nice to see them connected with an outworld and with some ants inside. Good luck.

I will try to get some pictures of the colonies I have residing in them.  :)  Slightly different setup as I have them in The View versions of these but same concept of the hydration and the nest.    The next couple projects I take on will be larger and and some will be more natural looking.  Finishing up the Modular line tonight and then moving forward.  :)
