If you have removed the mites then that is wonderful.
The one that was moulting that you moved WHILE moulting. May or may not be ok. depends on its stress taking levels. try not to worry about it, as what will be will be. I know its hard not to worry but you moved them doing the right thing because you were concerned

Those are the good mites. They munch on the scorps' leftovers because it's an easy meal.
