Vertical Formicarium ( Small )

I've always wanted an ant farm. I remember as a young child seeing my first ant farm in a movie. It was huge, bunch of dirt between two sheets of glass with all these tunnels. It fascinated me greatly. I asked my parents for one and they both said no ( bugs in the house and all ).

Thankfully with advancements into the study of ants, technology and a common love of ants... there are people, like Mike Bustos, who are helping others, like myself, who share a love of our tiny friends.

I'm married now, have a stable job and a place of my own. Because of this I could make the decision to get an ant farm. First thing I did was some research into ant farms. I didn't want one of those lame gel farms. Horrible for the ants and ugly to boot. At first I tried making my own. Went to Home Depot, bought some wood, plexi-glass and some non-toxic sylicone. Followed a tutorial and when it came time to put the dirt in... well it didn't go as planned.

I went back to the drawing board. That is when I stumbled upon AntsCanada on Youtube. I spent a few hours watching Mike on his channel and when I saw the unboxing video for the vertical formicarium I knew it was just what I wanted. I went to the website and bought it right away.

I waited for it to get in, I was so excited. I had a queen ant already waiting. She'd already laid some eggs. Once it arrived I carefully constructed it. I loved how safe the pieces were packaged. The brown wax paper protecting the plastic was a nice touch, I would only suggest leaving a bit of the paper over hanging so there is a starting point to peel it off from.

Once constructed you could tell right away how well crafted it was. Worth every penny. The extra pieces are a nice touch too. I can't wait for my colony to become large enough that I need to get another formicarium to attach to my Verticle one, which is nice knowing I have that option.

All and all I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend it.

Price: 10/10 ( Quite modest. )
