Naturalesque Leaf Cutter Formicarium

Post your builds, private or commercial set ups. This is where we will document the creation of housing or the planning and construction of projects from scratch. This differs from the Journal Section because this section does not concentrate on the Ants or the other animals that are being kept, this section focuses on the progress of the build.

Well updates have come to a slow down for the moment. Holiday time is not great for the work I do (Pre school teacher so too many days off to get higher pay) and just trying to get supplies for the next step.

Bought two new larger boxes, same things more or less, display cases but these ones are for "mini football helmets". They are more square in shape (still rectangular, but close to a square) and are taller, wider just a slightly shorter length but it's very slight. They are all around 33% larger.

Settled on Hydrostone being the material I will use for the final project. It's highly water absorbant, tough enough to hold up to the Acromyrmex. So gotta get the stuff for that still. Also need to figure out how I will cast and shape everything. I am talking with EarthTiger about that actually
