Hi I have been keeping ants for a few years now and was wondering if there is any alternatives to the standard plaster and y-tong type formicariums. I was thinking about it and came up with a low fired clay formicarium. This still absorbs water and can be made into any shape. I made a few tests on some low fired pieces of clay and they did in fact actually absorb water. Any questions and comments on this are welcome, and just as a side note do you think this could actually work?
