    The Mini Hearth is a founding formicarium created by Tar Heel Ants.  This founding habitat for ants is intended for all species and all sizes. With a refill time (hydration maintenance) of 3-4 weeks or longer this formicarium is ideal for beginners and experienced alike.  A key feature of the Mini Hearth is the connection port located on the left side for future expansion and options for moving the colony when they outgrow their habitat.
