The Sour Cherries are a unique and exotic pink and blue colored zoanthid polyp. The mouth is a bright pink red, which is surrounded by a small band of blue. A thick middle band of pink red forms a concentric ring around the inner polyp mouth area. A thin outer ring of blue occurs near the polyp tentacles which are greenish in color. The pattern of the Sour Cherries is similar to the Miami Vice polyps, but the blue concentric ring of the Miami Vice is actually pink colored in the Sour Cherries.
