I know that mites have been discussed in great length, but I have a random question, I have a MF G. Actaeon, and in her water dish I have found several white dots, similar to those described in the TKG, however, when I removed one of said white dots and checked it out, black contruction paper, 20x magnification, I could see no distinguishing characteristics, no movement, no legs, nothing. I have tried looking in and around the enclosure at night with a small flashlight, other than irritating my T I have seen no response, no movement, nothing. So, what in the blazes am I finding? (note: my three other t's, all slings, have no such problem, not little dots anywhere)

Sounds like poo. A few of my Ts like to use their waterdishes as toilets too.

sounds like poo to me as well, tarantulas have a hard time distinguishing clean water from stale / dirty so just keep the bowls washed and it shouldnt be a problem
