Do you have connectors for your small formicarium?

I didn't see them listed

If you're talking about the Starter formicarium, I do actually. Not sure why I never made them available or included them. They're normally used to connect chambers of the fungus grower formicariums which are made with the same materials and measurements. I am planning on listing a whole bunch of stuff on here, I just haven't gotten to it yet. If you need a connector I can get you one the next time I see you.

Yes, I was referring to the starter...Thx
Have you ever made or considered making out worlds like we’ve seen in your journal video. Where the test tube can remain the foundry. I’m interested in a couple of those, assuming they are good for larger queens like Camponotus?

I just caught 2 Pogonomyrmex Badius queens yesterday I got some questions: is the the dirt box right for me? I know Pogonomyrmex need dirt I got both in test tubes with dirt. Which dirt box should I buy? I have limited space in my room how big is the dirt box? I would very much appreciate size some comparisons thanks.

The dirt boxes are 2-5/16" sq. x 5-1/16" h they are great for small pogonomyrmex colonies or queens.

How do I buy these?

 

Also would it be possible to add a online shop on this website instead of having a marketplace section?

In his first post he says you can email him your order. I doubt he has enough orders to justify a whole website to sell his formicariums.

Thank you and what I meant was making it more streamlined to being able to order and pay for many things not just his formicariums that are posted in the Marketplace instead of needing to email people etc. it would make the whole thing a bit more streamlined.

No problem. I think occasionally Terry from Byformica will put his dirt shacks for sale on Amazon.

I’m wondering the same thing, plus I’d love if Drew could design a much larger dirt box.

Like one that could house a mature colony.

Even an AC hybrid nest couldn't hold as many as that would.  :D

You could connect that to a small aquarium set up as an outworld and put them side by side on a nice aquarium stand.  That would be amazing!
