    Default Yellow stone polyps- do they sting???

    Pretty sure, over the past couple days, my yellow stone polyps have stung a blue tipped stag, 7 inches combined length between branches, and toasted it.....

    I have another culprit, but the yellow polyps are my primary suspect.....

    Looking for similar experiances, or experiances to lead me in another direction. Anyone familiar w/ stone polyp/SPS interactions? Do yellow pollyps have a harder sting than your typical paly/zoa, when ot comes in contact with SPS?

    I guess anything is possible, but yellow polyps are generally pretty benign. I'd keep an eye out at night for an LPS with long sweepers.
