Hey D, they are acro mites. I had them already in my tank, and the frag you brought over had them as well, so you already had them too. Some say they are really bad for the acro's, some say they don't matter. I am indifferent at this point. There is a lot of info on this subject on RC.

coralseas - I agree with Tom - Red Acro bugs. There is much talk about these guys, and it isn't real clear yet what they are doing on the coral. Some people say the corals get "healthier" after the red bugs are eliminated, but some people don't have an issue at all with them in the tank. As far as dipping goes, I've read many different types of dips with no success, some dips with short term success, and some dips that seemed to work (Seachem's comes to mind, but there are also folks that didn't have success). If you go to the great threads forum on the board, there is a thread called "Let's Talk About ~Pests~" with a link to the current treatment some are using......Interceptor/hearworm medicine for dogs. Keep in mind that the interceptor does effect pods, shrimp, and crabs in the system.
