hi shawn,

i really believe they might be fungus gnats because i have seen many gnats around my plants. i have basically just been washing them off with sudsy water and rinsing them well before planting in the viv.
the damage that fungus gnats cause is similar to what i have observed too. also they are encouraged by soil that is overly moist which makes sense b/c some of the starter pots had poor drainage. for a better ID, the offenders were seen on the surface of the soil or right below it and they looked like a tiny 1/16 to 1/32 bug that crawled.
who knows, might still be my persistant mite phobia (lol), but thats my guess. thanks for the insight. ~L
