Description of Options
Museum Glass (aka "invisible glass) is a 95% glare reduction glass. It is excellent for photo and video opportunities with your ants.
The pointy things on the ceiling...most ants like to hang on them and use them to control the humidity in small pockets around the formicarium.
This tells us how you want the foraging area (the top area where ants are fed) to look. We use natural rocks, artificial plants, and different colored substrates for the floor.
Foraging Area Position
Top or side. Side foraging areas are held on by magnets. They have a lower wall on the side for fluon coverage (escape prevention) so if you have stinging ants definitely use the top foraging style. Some ants cannot climb well, so removing the vinyl tubing on the top foraging areas is recommended for Pogonomyrmex genus, Odontomachus genus, and a few others. Currently the preference is heavily in favor of the top design (95%-5%), but some old schoolers really enjoy the side ones!
Side panel colors (sides, top and back) can be : Bone (white), Brown, Light or Dark Blue, Lime or Forest Green, Black, Beige, Red, Grey, Terracotta, Purple, Pink, Yellow, and others.
Interior Colors are standard for this package of white sand. We can do colored interior (red, blue, gold/blonde, brown, dark grey, purple, green) for $8 additional for each mini hearth.
Glow in the DARK! Amazing view of your ants with the lights out. This phosphorescent coating is safe for your ants and charged under normal lighting in 30 minutes. Black lights bring out the effect much better! Once charged sufficiently can stay "charged" with light for hours.
These packages are taking between 10-20 days to complete currently, and depending on the amount of options chosen during ordering, could take longer. If you have questions about your order please email email@example.com. Thank you!
