The Ant Farm Experiment

I happened to be browsing through Sharper Image today when I spotted this: Antworks!! On clearance! I thought to myself, "Hmm, looks cool but kind of puny." So I bought two.

Now I have the dilemma of figuring out how to connect them. Eventually, I'll buy more and connect those as well. Or I can just recoup my costs and shell out for the Tunnel Vison and just get 6 but that's over $125. I'm gonna stick to my cheaper versions and mod them. If I can figure out an effective enough solution, I'll just go back and buy them out.



Any modding ideas would be welcome and greatly appreciated!

I've seen one of these in a store. Established with the ants.
Neat. I never had success as a kid trying to get the colony up and running.

Share pictures with us when you get your little project established!

drill a small hole in the side and stick in a plastic tube wide enough for the ants to pass through, then seal that with hot glue.

a long time ago i helped make an ant farm at summer camp, and that's how we linked them all up to each other.

Easy enough to custom your own size using lath, 1x4 and clear plexi. You could wire up some different lighting effects in the base too... cascading rainbow, whatever.

I'm not quite that handy, Dennys. I'm really just looking for the simple solution (for dummy's) to connect my two ant farms together.

Take the lid off both of them, drop the ants in, flip one upside down and duct tape it on top of the other one.

6 x 9 = 42

I had two kinds of ant farms as a kid in the 1950s [insert the usual, "how old Rev is, jokes here]: version 1 was "Dead Ant Desert" and version 2 was "Fungus Farm."

I hope you'll have much, much more success.
