Personally, I would love if AntsCanada brought back the Habitat Nest Classic, it was so naturalistic and nice looking. Who agrees? :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

You can make this from 10$ at your home in 2 days with waiting to dry included
Photo frame with glass, plaster and clay is all you need

If you can explain it/show pictures I might can help designing it. You can also look for my formicarium creations from ytong in this forum http://forum.AntsCanada.com/viewforum.php?f=39

I think the reason it was discontinued is because of the time and work it takes to construct one. For the amount of orders AntsCanada receives it is unrealistic to be able to make these nests. Their hybrid nests are made with a 3D printer so it is easy to mass produce as you can automate a lot of the building process.
