Hey AntsCanada team!
Hey sorry for bothering you but I am really enjoying your ant homes, one thing that I'd really like to see is a product offering for acrylic valves. I'd like to have these valves in order to shut off routes outside the ant towers etc. That way when attempting upgrades with a turn of the valve I can isolate the flow of ants in and out (clear Acrylic so I can make sure I don't squishy the little guys). How about it fellas??

Do you mean something like this?

Or are you looking for an outworld/nest with a built in valve on the connector vents?
