Designing a 3D printed holder which prevents slime molds from escaping ... anybody interested?

I am making a slime mold holder which prevents slime molds from escaping by surrounding them with a moat of alcohol. The moat is 3D printed and can be adjusted for any size, depending on how big you want your slime mold culture to be. I will keep everybody updated!

Alcohol might evaporate a bit quick but a moat is a good idea, testing different liquids could be an experiment. I've been printing maze stencils & microscope coverslip holders for watching slimes in the lab. For simple shapes you can get away with just taking a 2d drawing and extruding it which is really quick to do. 

Let them escape!! :)
