    Hi Guys,
    Was just in the posting mood and decided to post some pics of something I really like in my tank.
    Got these Colony polyps a short while back - one was dead and covered in fungus (if u still remember the post) and I was quite worried about them.
    Anyway I just thought I'd share my pics (seeing as though you guys love pics) and experiences and maybe get to see some pics of different types if you have.
    Was just a few on the rock to start - now they cover the rock completely - some have really long tentacles (the bottom one has tentacles about 4cm diameter) and they look beautiful waving in the current.Spread like wild fire so this may be a problem down the line - moved them and noticed they had left two behind which two days later are now 6!
    Anyway here's the pics and looking forward to any you may want to share:
    (sorry bout the quality - I have a crappy camera)

    Mine is not agro at all only grows fast so maybe not a good idea to put it close to a slow grower like SPS.

    Thanks guys.
    Mine doesn't seem very aggro.
    I believe they belong to the zoanthid family so they probably are toxic to touch.
    Like just about anything else don't let them touch each other and you should be fine.
    I have a monti next to mine living quite happily.
    I would consider it safer than something like a hammer or frogspawn.
