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.
** Alternatively, for the occasion, we have decided to give you the option to add on a live Queen Ant at a great price, INCLUDES; one Queen in a test-tube, one elevated ring, one cone adapter with silicone fitting and small tubing, so it can connect easily when it's time to move in.

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.
Tubing size of this unit is 9.5 mm (3/8 inch).
The red film (identical to all other formicariums) is a thick ref light transmission film, very good to choice to protect from natural light, you can see into the formicarium without touching it.
The black plastic cover, the black plastic cover is a new idea we will be testing with this product and perhaps integrate it on all other designs, it 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. Great option to offer complete darkness, only downside are the vibrations you may produce while trying to remove the lid every time you want to see inside.
The "Accessories pack" gives you, one plastic tweezer, one 3 ml pipette, one nano dish, one small dish with handle, one small 5 ml liquid feeder (New featured design).
The original sized Jumbo formicarium can be paired with a regular sized glass outworld using tubing, link here:
