Re: My new Ytong formicarium + outword

It's been several months since I've made this and it has been a great success so far so I thought I'll post updated pictures to encourage others because I saw there are several threads on the topic. The left one houses formicas of some kind I've got this year, too few for photo shoots yet so they'll...

Re: where can I find ytong

You should look for alternatives, I can buy Ytong in 1 km from my home in EU but if you don't have supplier around I wouldn't order it from overseas because it's quite heavy and the shipping will cost a lot

Re: Baby ants!! What next??

Make sure to have a little gap for air to move in when taping together tubes, also solid protein food is only eatable by the brood of the ants so if you either low on brood or you want the workers/queen to get protein asap use feeder insects instead of fish food. Sugary/honey water works. You can st...

Re: Is this ok?

Re: Would this work as a founding chamber?

looks good to me tho I wouldn't make a "founding chamber" as a test tube setup is often the most perfect living area for them until 10-20 workers, when you could instead 3d print a formicarium for them from the material you'd use here Look up my posts for my 3d formicarium and if you like it I can g...

Re: 3D printed?

It could be printed as 3D printers can make "fabric" from hair thin lines, but it would be fragile I think so it's better to use some flexible pre made plastic mesh like the anti-mosquito one for example

Re: what to feed a semi-c. queen

Small invertebrates like Drosophila are perfect for semi-claustral queens. If you have trouble finding them in your area, you could always make food for them (most kinds of flour or mashed root vegetable, mixed with vinegar) and wait for the flies to come to you. Winged flies aren't as convenient, ...
