- Nest Capacity
Designed by Esthetic Ants himself and shipped directly to us, this nest is made from Ytong, an aerated concrete which is lightweight, durable, and insulating. This nest is great for growing colonies of any species.
We ship these nests with small (100 x 100 x 100 mm) bioscape outworlds.
- The nest dimensions are 106 x 121 x 28 mm (l x w x h).
- 7 straight shaped chambers.
- Ytong block holds moisture that can be added via 'the chimney' at the side of the formicarium.
- Escape proof mesh embeded into the frame.
- Clearview acrylic held down with screws (can be easily removed if needed). We don't recommend removing all the screws.
- 10 mm and 15 mm access port for easy connection.
- Nest can be used both vertically and horizontally by rotating the chimney. You might have to use pliars to do so.
