The ant farm, molded out of plaster is the heart of your set-up. A unique handmade Ant's Kingdom product, firmly mounted with the best materials. With this antfarm we believe we're offering you both the most sturdy and easy-to-use product in ant keeping currently available.
We carefully designed the ant farm with a unique watersupply. From the centre of the ant farm you can add water with the enclosed syringe, to arrange the best humidity levels for your kind of ants. This unique watersupply makes this ant farm very practicle.
In the middle of the ant Farm surrounding the watersupply the chambers are very shallow (approximately 4mm), this way the colony is easy to observe. The chambers on the outside of the nest are deeper (approximately 7 mm) ideal for the workers to stack their food supply and seeds. All the chambers and corridors are connected to each other. Amaze yourself and watch how the ants make the nest their home and experience how intelligent these extraordinary animals are.
On both sides off the nest we have made an opening which makes it easy to connect the nest testtube with the colony and for example an arena or nutrition bowl. Choose your arena (or nutrition bowl) to complete your setup, we will add the parts to connect them for free.
Mostly all ant colonies are appopriate to keep in this ant farm. Above you can add a colony for a discounted price. We always advice to also start with an arena/nutrition bowl. The ants will learn to get their food from the arena and bring their garbage there.
The diet of ant colonies may vary. Most common ants like Lasius niger and Messor barbarus have a diet consisting of sugarwater, honeydew and fruit flies and the Messor colony add seeds to their diet. Choose your nutrition set above.

Thank you for your interest and question. For bigger colonies (big amount of ants) it is suitable. For small colonies of Pheidole, like 10-150 workers, it is better to start with just the tube and an arena. Please send us an email if you have any further questions, we are happy to help.
Thanks for you question. They are suitable for camponotus, we would recommend the General version. For myrmica we would advice a sand antfarm and for the weaver ants, you need specialised antfarm. Please just send us an email if you have any other questions!
