Overruned with little white food/mold mites? Trying H. Miles

Post by Tetra8CClyPeatus »

I have my crabitat overrun with mites and I cannot do any deep clean because i have crabs under . And deep cleaning , etc. Will stress and possibly cause death to a molting in process crab They look like this!

They are food and mold mites, but they crawl everywhere and annoy the crabs!!
So I am gonna try the hypoaspis miles

Just placed an order for a tube of 25,000 from Evergreen Growers Supply

Has anyone else treated with hypoaspis miles( predatory mites) and does it work??

I know many friends that used predatory mites in there tank and it worked great! They got rid of the mites and after when they go rid of them all they either died or left - didn't harm the crabs...

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.
