The Discus formicarium is a saucer-like, Type III formicarium from Tar Heel Ants. Discus features a larger water tower, unmistakable ledges, decorative stones in a large interior chamber. This formicarium is for founding queens and small colonies.
The Atom C is the smaller version of this formicarium. Discus is over twice the size in diameter and depth. The intended use for both are to provide the ant keeper with a "birds-eye" view of the colony similar to the Inception Chamber habitats. The ledges and sheltered areas of the formicarium are easily viewable through slight turning and with the aid of a light source. These areas provide honey pot ants the much needed ledges to hang from and off species that are very shy a place to found their colonies with increased privacy.
