At the Cape Town Reef Club meeting there were a lot of guys asking for update pics.. it has been a while so I quickly took some snaps this morning.. some may be a bit out of focus, but what I get the chance I will give the glass a good clean, park a chair in front of the tank and take my time.. here are some so long

Thanks guys.. Warr, there are different species of Banners, I can't remember which one mine is but I have never had a problem with him from day one, he has just always been a magnificent fish, eats well and gets on with everyone, what I like about them is that they don't hide in the reef at moonlight so he is always there, where the tangs find their spot. My one loves nipping at button polyps so they never get a chance to extend fully but other than that he leaves everything else alone.. oh, and he will eat anything, loves calamari but will take whatever he can get from flake, pellets, frozen, no matter.

What weed jacques?
Rory.. check in the second picture..

OK, now look to the right of the SPS shaped like a bent finger.. there is some small tufts.. those fu%)_*%@... there is just no way I can get rid of them.. I chatted to Calfo at IMACSA about them, jeez, I forget their name now.. he said the only way to get rid of it is to remove the LR and literally chizel it out, take off an inch of rock.. well I have tried that, in some cases I have butchered the rock, and the buggers still come back..

Jacques, anytime dude, pieces break off all the time ;), I have one or 2 small pieces lying around I will attach to a tile or something for you and grow up !!

Jacques, the stuff that is literally growing up to the Monty is Bali Polyp. If you look at the full tank shot you will see some really bright yellow ones.. you can get them to colour up like this.. I did it by accident, a piece of rock with some on fell behind the reef, I only became reunited with the said rock a long while later and they were freaking lumo yellow, I can only deduce that it was due to lack of light.. they are slowly changing back to the yellow/brown colour.

Muz, they are colonial hydriods, i had them, the only way i got rid was the "blowtorch" method which involves removing any infected rock and burning the little barstids of with a blow torch;)
