Ideal for a young colony in need of a small space and foraging area, its compact nature makes it very practical, easy to use and simple.
Similar to its bigger brother, the nest features a hydration chamber located at the top center; has an all rounded inner chamber, it is modular and expandable, the textured interior provides an ideal substrate. The design of the chamber and how the glass sits on it, allows for great visibility, and when you put two or more of them together, the glass seems to keep extending.
The black plastic lid, is a black matte 3D printed plastic lid, with the same cutout as the red film, but 1 mm thick and with a small handle at the center to lift easily. A great option to offer complete darkness which ants love, the only downside is the vibrations you may produce while trying to remove the lid every time you want to see inside as well as the drastic change in light every time you remove it, so be gentle.
Tubing size of this unit is 9.5 mm (3/8 inch).
