Re: Baby isopods taking over!

Both are harmless :) You can see the link that I provided to show you the difference in looks up close. Springtails look more like bowling pins. They also jump, which is why you will find them floating in the water :) Food mites can come in different colors.

Re: Mites! Need help!! Good or bad?!?

Hello! I didn't see you attach a picture, but if they were in the dish, my best guess would be that they are springtails. Springtails typically have a population burst and then they die off to a manageable population. Springtails are beneficial to your crabitat. Here is a link on bugs in the crabita...
