I recently constructed my first planted vivarum, complete with a springtail culture i ordered from Joshs Frogs (would not recommend, terrible customer service) however, as the population started to increase and i started to notice them on the surface of the soil, i also noticed very tiny, pearl-white circular bugs moving around as well upon close inspection they were obviously some sort of mite, as it turns out they are predatory mites that feed on springtails and other microfauna. I'm extremely worried that they'll wipe out my springtail population. has anyone else had this problem? are there any remedies?
