Need help identifying bug found in mouse tank

Houston, TX

I found these bugs in my pet mouse's popsicle stick house. One of the pictures shows how it looks to the naked eye. It's that tiny speck next to the toothpick. The other two are magnified. (I magnified them by putting a lens from a laser pointer on my phone's camera because I'm broke.) Does anyone know what they are?

It's a mite of some kind; does not look like one that feed on rodents; more likely feeding on the mouse's food or nesting material...
