Hey guys, i'm waiting for a day off of work to hit up some stores to start my own home made outworld, something i'm beyond excited about lol. I knew about formicariums but not about foraging grounds! Coming across insect slip products existing and the idea of water channels/moat to contain the colony boundaries has blown my mind!

I've watched Mikey's video on making an outworld and this will be how i go about trying my first (still keeping this hobby as cheap as possible for now). But i did see the floating island in another post which i've added below, i love it! Would love to see what you guys have created or use :)

So, share your ideas and or pics of your outworlds please! :D

Nice set up GriffinAnt, that's the kind of thing i plan to make up for my first outworld. Are your ants loving it?

Any pics Camponotus? I can't find any suppliers of fluon online for Australia. I work 20 days straight at a time so itching for my time off to see if hobby/pet stores stock it here.

my formcaruims, no ants moved in as yet and the ytong vertical is already going moldy so guess gonna have to get a lasuis hybrid nest. the omni nest small verticail will be perfect for my messors when my queen stops messing about.

I made a pretty kick-butt out world from a 10-gallon aquarium if I do say so myself. Keeping young camponotus in it! Excited for the next year explosion!
