Do scorps get mites? I could have sworn I saw something real little crawling on one of my scorps. If so what do I do?

they can get mites. Ususally what ive heard is mites that dont move on the scorpion are bad bad ones.
Ive had mites before, didnt know what they were but I had a sorta semi "dry out" period as they wanted the moisture. I think the ones I had where the ones that eat any left overs so "good mites"

What did it look like? A good description will help the people on here with better understanding then me answer your question

If you see it crawling, then it's a good mite (predatory species, possibliy family Phytoseiidae). The bad mites show up in huge numbers around an arthropod's joints and are very tiny and don't move.

I only saw a few (less then 10) and they looked like lice. Moving around on the scorps head.

Moving is fine, still and around their joints bad.

What I had was never on my scorpion. but have a look on google to try to find what you have seen.
Maybe try to get a picture

Sounds like you've got predatory mites. They're nothing to worry about. Smile
