Buying A Formicarium Vs. Making One?

I plan on raising an ant colony from a single queen. When I need a formicarium for my colony, will it be better to buy a formicarium online, or to make my own from materials from local pet and hardware stores? I’m looking for functionality as well as quality. Pricing aside, what would you do?

    If you can find the necessary materials, you could make it yourself. It’s quite fun too.
    I’ve tried out a few plaster nests before finally cashing in a hundred dollars or so to buy one of Tar Heel Ants formicarium. It’s working great, much better than my plaster ones.
    If you can find Y-tong, use it. It’s much better material, but need to drill the chambers and tunnels out.
    If you decide to buy, I recommend Tar Heel Ants or Anthills.net. TarHeel Ants have received positive feedbacks even though it’s new, probably because the owner is also a fellow ant keeper with a lot of years of experience.
    If you do decide to use Tar Heel Ants, please PM ( private message ) me. There’s a referral program going on where you could get a 5% discount, not including shipping, off the total order. I’ll give you the code. Of course, I’ll get some benefit from it too. )
