Oh I didn't know mites don't jump, now I'm really curious as to what they are! I had just assumed that's what they were from their size and how quickly they infested the tank. They're not fleas, at least not the common kind you see on cats. They have a flatter abdomen than fleas, and are lighter in color. I wish I had a good camera to get a picture, but mine isn't great.

Do you mean use flea/tick powder on the tank? Not on the monitor right? Pardon me if I sound terribly ignorant, but like I said I've never had to deal with anything like this with my reptiles, and I've read so many different suggestions on websites that I'm really confused as to what is safe. I am just paranoid about hurting my monitor by using a dangerous treatment...
