  • Description

    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.


    • 5" Diameter Nest Block with optional connection port size (1/4", 3/8", or 1/2")
    • Large Water Tower (Screen covered apparatus inside habitat for humidity)
    • Sand-coated interior, brown or white optional
    • Rocks decorate the interior, typically 2 per habitat.  This gives a third surface for the ants to nest (the water tower screen and the sand-coated chambers being the first two).
    • Foraging Area optional
    • Glass or Acrylic tops
