For the discussion of any creepy crawlies that may have taken up residence in your tank, including mites. Please note that isopods have their own forum.
I guess I'm a bad crabby owner because I don't do anything about food mites. I notice that they are cyclical in that they come and go. Right now my 55 gallon has hardly any while my 40 gallon is loaded with them. As soon as I put food in the 40; it becomes crawling with the little things They also get into the water and drown in little clumps.
