Ok this is weird I bought this stuff at Jacks ( a local pet store .. chain actually ) its called Repti-Blend . Supposed to be organic and pesticide , fertilizer and insect free .After 3-4 days I get some sort of real tiny greyish looking nimph in my Ts water . It reminds me of some sort of larve of a real small bug. They squirm in the water and I end up changing the substrate and water asap . . . Any Ideas?

those sound like they could be mites.. try drying the cage out a bit. Also make sure to remove any bolus after feeding. Did you nuke or bake the substrate before putting it in the cage?

It may have been free of those things when it left the manufacturer's warehouse but after being shipped round all over and sitting on store shelves it will pick up stuff along the way.
