Our substrate for formicariums

Here you will find the right substrate for your formicarium. This should be selected according to the needs of the species of ant you want to keep.

We have everything you need from sand-loam mixtures to granulates and humus to create a natural habitat for your ants. A mixture of sand-loam and a granulate is ideally suited to prevent waterlogging in nests. Simply fill in a layer of granulate in the lower area and then put in the sand as the upper layer.

Tip: further down on this page you will find our "soil calculator". With this you can easily calculate which amount of substrate you need for which formicarium size.
