NEW FEATURE: Replacing the normal sand-coated interior, this formicarium has a vermiculite interior. Vermiculite has special properties of moisture retention. For years it has been used as an incubation material for captive breeding of reptiles. It also has a naturalistic look, a darker substrate with some shiny flecks that appear in some types of soil underground. (+$10).

The Fallen Fortress is a new formicarium design from Tar Heel Ants. This design for your ant colonies features a 4x4x4" foraging area magnetically attached to the back of a 4x4x2 inch nest. This is a very similar design to our popular Fortress formicarium.
The video below is a tutorial and review video done by a 3rd party user. It was done using the Fortress formicarium which is almost identical in design overall.

Removable vent - The removable vent is best explained by calling it a "lid on a lid". This second lid is removable via magnets from the main lid. The purpose is to provide easy access to the foraging area to drop in food items. This is especially helpful when your habitat contains lots of hungry ants (perhaps it was too long since they were fed....) that are climbing on the upper parts of the foraging area walls.
Museum Glass - You will notice the difference every time you visit with your ant colony. Museum glass looks invisible! 95% glare reduction.
