(A4) Buried Traditions











***Note: As of 4/24/14 All formicaria come with water towers.  These are installed inside the formicaria and aid in hydration.  They act like a temporary humidification system while filled.  For more information on them see the product link here (water towers).  These are camouflaged inside your formicarium with only the screen visible.  The screen is much too small for any ant to pass through and only water will pass out of it either directly when you hydrate or indirectly through evaporation.

Buried Traditions

Buried Formicarium takes the traditional framed nest and buries one on one side for an underground experience in this all-in-one setup.  A 3-level is 3.5 inches tall by 7 inches wide formicarium (3-levels) beneath the surface of the foraging arena.  A 4-level is 4.5 inches tall by 7 inches, 5-level is 5.5 inches tall by 8 inches (best value) Only one side of this all-in-one will contain a formicarium.   The usable area for nesting purposes is acutally larger than a 2-level, double sided, Pinnacle formicarium.  The choice of colors red, blonde, yellow, black, or khaki are available and come by the way of 100% natural dyes using our very own  flash-dying technique.  In the foraging arena red, white, or grey rocks will be mixed in with artificial flora and wood of various types.
