I've had food mites in my tank or a long time - they don't bother the Crabbies & they clean up any bits of food left in the 'tat. I'm not worried by them at all, and only really see them if fruit etc if left in too long, other than that they are hidden. I can understand how they might creep some peo...

I have all PP's currently, and I've found that almost of all the crabs I've taken out of tanks that were all sand with poor nutrition came in & stuffed themselves silly with the Coir substrate. Some then go on to molt, some don't. I'm not sure whether they're after nutrients, cellulose, or something...

Don't know if this will help or not, but I had some Hermies arrive with Mites on before I knew to look for them(I was a newbie) and I had already introduced them to the main tank. The mites didn't survive, and I've never seen any since-apart from on new crabs-and then I bathe them off. They were all...
