Hello Ant Enthusiasts !!

My name is Opal - old as heck, they/them, way too excitable.
I love ants, I love crocheting, & I decided to combine the two fixations.
These are test tube cozies !!

This one's a bit holey because the tube was bigger than I anticipated, but it would be denser on a normal test tube.

It helps keep your ants insulated, to give them that extra layer of protection.
Keeps them dark, helps you identify your colonies, looks nice & cozy.
Keeps the tubes from rolling !! Makes them easier to handle !!

This way you could keep your tubes somewhere you can keep an eye on them,
BUT it still offer the ants their privacy, & they look so cute too !!

Who says formicariums have to be the only visually appealing stage of colony growth ??

Would anyone be interested ??
Thinking $8/cozy, $5/per for orders of 4+!!
Any options ; solids, stripes, vareigated / multicolored.
Heck, I'll make your ants into a pride flag or an HP house.

Comment below, let me know what you think AC Family !!

I would love to have some of these, it seems like they would be good for heat loving species, which I have. How can I look into purchasing them?

They're great insulators for heated species, I use one for my CA-02 which need warmth !!
I don't know if DMing is allowed if you send me one - I'm new here so I'm not allowed to send one out -
but by all means pop me a message & we'll talk about it !! :>

I have no idea how to do this, but these look really cool, and I really want one, so I think we can work something out. :)
