Bugs in food dish.. food mites?

Post by ciaraalston » Sun Oct 28, 2018 8:05 am

I found these while switching the food today. It's dry food, and it's only been in the tank 2 days. I haven't seen them before. What do y'all think?
Sorry for the terrible pictures, they were fast lol

EDITED TO ADD: I have isopods in my tank... Could be babies??

Those look like Springtails - Not harmful. I've had them be white before, but they do come in brown.
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com
