    You don't need to separate them at all. Babies and adults are fine together throughout their lives. It's much easier to maintain humidity in one enclosure than several.
     
  2. I'm mega jealous Benjamin these are gorgeous. Congrats on the babies.

    Out of curiosity how harmful are these types of mites. I've noticed some mites in one of my enclosures, and I think it is these as they are not white, but not positive. Sorry to derail the discussion from These awesome flameys

    Those are commensal mites and not at all dangerous. If you have mites that congregate on legs, head or other soft and vulnerable areas, it can be a problem. I think bad mites like that are pretty rare. But no worries here!

    Also, commensal mites stay right on the millipede, crawling all over it's body. And they are MUCH larger than grain mites.
