Chambers Acrylic Nest.
Here at AntsMynala we have the very best in ant keeping Formicarium on the market.
The nest measures 75mm by 110mm in size.
The chambers measures 30mm by 17mm
As your colony develops the 8 chamber acrylic nest can be expanded and connected to further Formicariums in the range, enabling you to have a potential nesting capacity housing 10,000 + Ants should you wish. Our horizontal nests inter lock so will fit together with all our other nest sizes. More expansion ports are available, please check our other products.
The nest has a hydration foam section, which provides a moisture level throughout the nest. The Hydration foam section can be removed from underneath the nest so as not to disturb the Ants too much. The AntsMynala Acrylic Nest 8 Chambers comes in different Chamber depths to best fit your Ant keeping needs, 6mm, 9mm and 12mm. We find the 9mm the most popular of sizes used for most species of Ants.
