I just purchased an ORA frag (Echinata I think) from my LFS. When I got home, I was looking at it with a 10X lupe, and could see several bugs on it. I just don't have the equipment to get a good pic, but they look like tiny yellow amphipods with red eyes. If anyone can help me out with an ID, I would be very grateful. Thanks!
