Essential Info

Do you have a budding nature lover in your home? Help your kids learn about science and society with the AntWorks® TVQuarium™, a self-contained environment for an amazing species of insect. Far more advanced than an ordinary ant farm, the AntWorks TVQuarium houses ants in a space-age gel that was originally formulated by NASA to test how ants successfully tunnel in a zero-gravity environment. It has a modern look with a slightly contoured black frame and blue LED lights illuminating the gel. Getting started is as easy as poking a few holes in the gel and adding ants, both of which can be done with the included tool. The AntWorks gel is complete with nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new colony. As your ant architects create a network of 3-D tunnels, you can enjoy observing them up close with a magnifying class or extreme zoom lens, both included.

Important note: Live ants are not included with the AntWorks TVQuarium, and must be collected or purchased separately. Order information is included with your package to purchase ants either by mail or online (approximately $3.95 to $10.95 extra depending on your shipping method).

What's Included

  • AntWorks TVQuarium display frame

  • Ant catching tool / tunnel starter

  • More Info

    Watch ants live, work and tunnel in the nutritious and non-toxic gel as they create series upon series of intricate tunnels. Since the ants can eat the gel, you'll never need to provide food or water, and since the gel is clear, you'll be able to watch the tunnel architecture in 3D, a far more in-depth perspective than traditional, soil-based ant farms. A blue LED base is included in this kit to illuminate the habitat at night.

    The AntWorks TVQuarium includes a container with a special gel formulation, the LED base, and a magnifying glass with which one can even see hairs on the ants! You'll get the tunnels started, but the ants will do the real work, creating their own environment of walls, hills, and tunnels.
