Well, I like invertebrates and have two ghost shrimp . But no insects or arachnids though I love tarantulas.

I could recommend a Grammostola aureostriata. They're a beautiful species and very docile

I have had some species of millipedes aswell but I didn't find them quite as interesting as tarantulas

What is the common name? I am bad with scientific names...

What kinds of millipedes did you have? I want one.I was informed by someone, they have mites that cover them, but mites that are spose to be there!Is this true? Thats a little creepy! I may love spiders and things like that and other creepy crawlies, but I HATE mites!

I think the common name is Chaco golden knee tarantula. I'm bad with common names

Millipedes indeed do have mites on them, this is completely harmless, in fact they clean the millipede! There are usually not many, only a couple of mites. You should be worried if there are a lot.

I had Archispirostreptus gigas and Spirostreptidae spec. 2

I would love an emperor scorpion or a desert hairy scorpion.I also want a couple tarantulas, as I mentioned before, not sure what species tho and used to want a millepede, not so sure now.

I once got a bad shipment of mealworms and they had grain mites, it was rather gross and disturbing!

I used to keep about 50 different species of tarantula, and various other bugs, but I've since cut down drastically to make room for snakes.

Tailless whip scorpions are more harmless than tarantulas, not being venomous and all.

How about a solifugid? They aren't venomous either, but I'd hate to get a finger into those pincers.
