So far, I have seen it only in zooxanthellate corals. I believe I have
seen some in anemones from the pacific NW region of the US and Canada.
This is not a whole animal sort of fluoresence that you see in 
zooxanthellate corals though. It seems limited to certain areas.
Sorry I can't be more specific- I have not regularly observed these
animals at Shedd Aquarium for a couple of years...
