The Mini Hearth (Type I) is a founding formicarium from Tar Heel Ants. This formicarium is intended for either single queens or small colonies to raise young (or small) ant colonies.
Using the original Mini Hearth (Type II still available here) we have substituted Ytong for the Type II material and added some additional features:
- Gravity Well
- Ytong Carved
- Sand coated chambers
- 3/8" Connection Port
- Choice of Colors (Interior and Exterior)
- Foraging Area w/choice of substrate (white sand, brown sand, vermiculite)
- Magnetically Connected Foraging Area
Additional Features (Optional):
- Top Expansion Panel (magnetically removable glass)
- Museum Glass or Standard Glass
- Nestmate (What is a nestmate? Watch video)
- Foraging Area Decor
Video coming soon!
