    "Hi guys! I recently bought a formicarium from a known person here on formiculture knows as loops. It is an acrylic formicarium, and has a beautiful out world and hydrating system. This is hands down one of the best, if not the best formicarium I've seen. It is great for any species, because you can hydrate it to the right amount depending on if you have a dry loving species or a wet loving species.

    When I got the box, it had fragile everywhere, and was sealed very well. Once I opened it, it was secured in and did not move at all. Not only that, but t was cushioned with styrofoam, bubble wrap, and a wrapping. It was going no where!

    Once I took it out, I had to assemble it a little. The assembly was sort of hard, but once I got it, I well, got it. It was easy to set up and looked stunning afterwards.

    Moving in my Camponotus Floridanus was the crazy thing. They went straight to the nest and made theirselves comfy. Note, these ants will not nest ANYWHERE, hey will just always be looking for a way out. Not this nest! It not only looks beautiful, it can be placed anywhere and still match anything. Loops has an extreme talent for these things, and I highly recommend buying. Out of a scale of 10, I would hands down give this a 10.

    Thank you again loops!."

    "The formicarium looks great and looks like it can hold about any species that isn't very large (like Camponotus).

    The lid for the outworld is snug to prevent escapes, but at the same time is very easily removed. The fake plants are very aesthetically pleasing and are positioned in a way that will not allow the ants to simply climb out of the formicarium with the lid off. As long as I apply a barrier (such as fluon) the ants will not escape with the lid removed (although I recommend it stays on to be safe and to prevent other insects from entering).These tubes allows for easy transport of a colony, directly from their nest, and the caps fit tightly to prevent smaller species from sneaking out.

    These forceps will make cleanup easy and the pipettes will make hydrating the nest both easy and accurate.
    Everything was packaged nicely, with bubble wrap around the items and packing peanuts filling in the empty spaces. Everything was snug so nothing would shake or break.Also, I found that the tubes for transporting ants fit nicely into the test tubes I had (diameter of 1.7 cm). If I decided to transport ants from a test tube to the nest, I doubt that I would even need to fill any empty space with cotton to prevent escapes. The other side of the tube is smaller so if I did have a smaller test tube, then connecting them would still be without difficulty.

    I would also like to thank Loops for throwing in this extra item because he was not able to send me the formicarium due to certain complications.
    It looks like I won't be needing to use that transporting trick after all!
    I will most definitely be making a journal using these items once nuptial flights start up!
    Thanks again, Loops!"
