Can you confirm that these are okay to use as founding chambers? I have a queen Camponatus Floridanus in one and was worried i'd messed up, i'd feel a lot better if that's actually one of their purposes!
Yes, perfectly fine to use Ant Towers as founding chambers.

Re: New Ant Keeper, But What Ants?

Wait, just a question, would it be sufficient to just give the queen water, or how would I Feed her withOUT her escaping? The queen needs protein too! What do I feed her with? I am so confused about this. :| My understanding is that Formica fusca are fully claustral, meaning the queen doesn't need ...

Re: New Ant Keeper, But What Ants?

Also, say for instance I bought a Test Tube Containing a Queen (from the Species Formica Fusca) and about 5-6 Eggs. How long would I Have to wait to put them in an Ant Tower or in an Ant hybrid Nest? Or as I call it an Ant Maze? If you want to use a Hybrid Nest, I would wait until you had 20-30 wor...

Re: New Ant Keeper, But What Ants?

Also, in the Field & Forest Biome Kit™ it says that it contains "Solidifying Ground Mix". What is that? A mix that can be used in outworlds for the "ground". You add water to make it into a paste, then add it to the outworld. It then hardens over the next 24 hours. This prevents the ants from being...

How will the heating cable areas be incorporated? Seems like its' the only thing missing from the other set ups.
There is a small tunnel in the base through which a heating cable can be added. The hollow core gets heated and provides a heat gradient throughout the nesting area.

Re: Ant Towers

That is awesome news! I look forward to it! are there any colony size recommendations for the small tower and the new upcoming large tower? Nothing "official" yet as we are all still experimenting with various species in Ant Towers. The Small is intended to function both as a founding chamber for n...

Re: Ant Towers

I just got my first Ant Tower! Really great concept and design! Love it! When do we get Medium, Large, and X-Large versions? The next version to come out will be called Ant Tower Large. We may or may not do an Xtra Large. The Ant Tower Large is 9.5 inches tall, with a diameter of 6 inches. It is a ...

Re: When are the Ant Towers coming out?

Is the large still hitting snags, or is it looking good for a release of q1 this year? Thinking about getting an ant tower small soon. But If the large is going to be released soon, I'd rather get that instead. We've reviewed some samples recently and there are just a few minor changes that need to...
