This starter set is especially suitable for various species of the genus Messor.One of the two farms is intended for the storage of the ant bread and should therefore remain completely dry in order to prevent the grains / seeds stored there from germinating or mold.
The “Digfix panels” can be used in the fully transparent farms.Alternatively, however, the “substrate – desert” can be used to fill the farms.The natural colour of the DigFix can vary between green / grey brown and earth brown. The colour does not affect the quality.
Connecting the set to other products
This set uses MEDIUM connectors (10mm) and can be connected using 14/10mm tubing to any other MEDIUM items in the ANTCUBE range.
Notes on manufacturing
The glass is cut to DIN 1249 with a tolerance of +/- 1mm. In the case of extremely small species of ants, additional protection against outbreak is essential.
Notes on the farm
When attaching or removing hoses if the hose fits very tightly on the connection socket, the socket should be lightly rubbed with a drop of our breakout protection oil or powder. The hose should then be pushed onto the socket using a turning or screwing movements without loading the socket with up and down movements. The same applies when removing the hoses from the connection socket on the farm. Please don’t just pull it off!
