Field, it got a chuckle from me..

Those are probably detrivore mites and are typically found in many enclosures... In fact it is probably impossible to keep them out.. Many of the dendrobatids will feed on them.

They look juicy. They are little holiday treats for your frogs :)

Sorry...it was a bad joke referencing a recent thread (I'm sure a few people will get it).
I got it Field. Gave me a laugh. I'm going to agree with detrivore/detritis mites. They are more or less harmless. If they got out of control in numbers, they could stress your frogs but that would be pretty rare. They will eventually end up in every viv but you should strive to keep them out of your bug cultures. Some frogs particularly like them and will ignore other food items until they have eaten any mites in site. Particularly Pumilio seem to suck them up like candy!
