    first one is a Bannerfish, or False Moorish Idol or Poor Man's Idol. Nice find. Google it for more info

    Second one, nope not sure.

    thanks guys, still not sure about the bannerfish though, if its a Heniochus acuminatus (not reef safe) or Heniochus diphreutes (reef safe) im sure about the Natal knife jaw fish

    Yeah, it's just the regular coachman, not H. dipreutes. Will whack your LPS when it's bigger.

    The knifejaw you don't really want in your tank.
