The Cherry Charms are a brilliantly colored zoanthid that actually prefer strong light and moderate to strong flow. The center disk is covered with brilliant golden speckles. Inter mixed with the gold there are some fine green pigments. Outer areas of the center disk are composed of radiating golden bands. Tentacles contain rings of bright pink to cherry red pigments. In low light conditions the polyps brilliant coloration can weaken. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
