Omni Small! Unbox Video and 1st Impression Notes

Here's the video!

A few things to note:

1. In one clip you can see a penny up by where the outworld goes. I did that for size comparison. I don't think people really realize how itsy bitsy it's gonna be when they order it, and honestly neither did I, but I love it to bits I love small things they're really cute and it still looks like a ton of usable space for my ants.

2. I blocked off the first chamber because I'm going to try to get my ants to move out of their moldy test tube. Now the whole issue with moving them into a formicarium too early is it's big and overwhelming and ants can get lost or whatever.

But, instead of moving them [they have 8 workers and a bunch of pupae that look ready to eclose] to a new test tube, then moving them again later, I thought it would be easier for these ridiculously stubborn ants of mine to simply have a makeshift test tube chamber set up and then grow into the rest of the nest. Since they apparently absolutely hate moving.

3. There are a couple cracks in the bottom of the outworld but it's not a huge deal, I wouldn't ask for a replacement over something like that.

4. 10/10 would recommend, especially for beginning ant keepers. It makes everything much easier, there's less to worry about as opposed to trying to make your first formicarium, you know your ants will be in a well-tested environment, and it's clear, high quality acrylic. I can see everything!

Which is good because I'm absolutely obsessed with filming my ants doing whatever it is they're doing ;u;

Glad you got it and your happy with it. I know Mikey and his partner try and get the orders out to people as quickly as they can. I only run the forums but being part of the AntsCanada Team is great and I do what I can from my end to help them and you as a customer. Its always nice to see someone happy with the products and its really cool to see a home made video of the Un-boxing's and hear the great responses from people like you!

Thanks for sharing your video and the great over view of the Omni Nest!
