Found acouple of mites in the tank. I'm freaking out. Im going to re-do the tank...I'm thinking thats the best possible way on getting rid of them.. Any body else had the problem ? What did you do? Any advice is surely appreciated.

I just let the tank dry out and they go away. Make sure you clean up and food remains.

What species is it? I keep all of my spiders on the dry side with the exception of a couple and that helps with mites.

Had the same problem bought some crickets that had grain mites on them. Let the tanks dry out and they die and go away
