The Tomato clownfish is sometimes referred to as the fire clown and bridled clownfish. It is found in the pacific ocean and grows to 7.5cm in length (some reports show them to grow up to 15cm long). It will eat all foods including live food and vegetable matter. It can become quarrelsome if kept in a small tank.
In the wild the Tomato clownfish would live with a host anemone (bubble tip anemone), but will survive well in captivity without one. It will fight with different species of clownfish and should only be kept as mated pairs.
Some adults will have a darker colouration to their bodies than others which adds to the confusion when trying to identify this fish.
When breeding the eggs are deposited onto a flat surface and protected until they hatch approximately 10 days later.
