Only had iso's for a week or so, tried dogfood and I get these, maybe im just a newbie and these are babies or something, maybe not? Please help
Yes, they are mites. Pulling and tossing as you suggested would keep them under control. If you wanted to get more aggressive about having a clean culture, you could pull a number of clean isopods with NO dirt, and put them into a new, sterile culture. I have seen mites take over and destroy springtail cultures but they never seem to do too much damage to isopod cultures.Maybe, ill do dogfood once a week and just pull it out after a day with the mites on it and toss it in the toilet, good to know the frogs eat them!
