Treble and Clef's Mite Diary

I have been crabbing for about a year, and this is my first experience with finding bugs in my tank. I'm not entirely sure if they are food mites, wood mites, or something completely different.

Predatory mite advice

Hello! I recently discovered a ton of tiny, gross whitish bugs in my crabitat. After initially freaking out that they were infesting and killing my babies, I did some research and I am thinking they are some harmless type of food or wood mite (see picture - can anyone ID?). In any case, I hate them ...

Re: Instant ocean formula per cup

Yes, thank you! I'm always worried if I make too much that it will grow bacteria or get icky since I don't use it very fast, but I'm also worried that the ratio would be different for smaller amounts.

Re: First time feeding this

I might be concerned about spices that may be in the sausages.
