No I diddnt dip, cant find it anywhere around here. I have examined them up and down i dont see any parasites or pox on them. I have been watching them at night and all night long the amphipods are just swarming the yellow jackets, they arent on any others....like just now i hit them with the flashlight and about 20-25 pods
were swarming them and jetted off.
This morning one polyp was open and looking nice...but in the afternoon it was closed up and did look like it was melting away though....
