This starter kit consists of an arena as outer area and an ant farm as nesting area.
The drinking through and the feed tubes can be affixed to the formicarium from the outside. If you want to feed merely small quantities there are two more empty feed tubes included. The caps of the tubes got bores and are fitting in the 13mm bores of the basin. This way it is possible to screw the tubes in or out. Also the bores can be closed by the included plugs.
Via the 50mm bores in the cover further modules can be added, like the separately available fogger, fan, airing grid, lamp socket. Alternatively the bores can be blosed by the included plugs. At one's convenience the formicarium can also be operated opened by merely using the removable frame with the „ants escape protection oil“.
Further there are two bores at the frontside to insert the metal thermo- and hygrometer.

Excellent starting kit.
Can have a natural setup (Provided material) or a naturalistic synthetic setup if you buy a few separate parts (What i
did). Contains everything you need for a starting or a developing colony. Excellent postage and packaging. I got mine in 4 days safely in the UK from Germany.
The only small downside is there is no provided Mesh/Filter plugs for the Arena/Vivarium Lid (Must be bought separately) which would of made it a unbeatable starter Kit.
