Latin Name Amphiprion Chrysogaster

The adult Tomato Clownfish is bright orange-red, with one white vertical stripe just behind the eyes, joined over the head. Some varieties have darker coloration or dark spots on their flanks. Juveniles are a darker red, with three vertical white bands and black pectoral fins.

The Tomato Clownfish can sustain even without a host anemone. It is reported to be aggressive and territorial when mature and specimens have been known to be extremely aggressive to clownfish of other species if not introduced at the same time. For this reason, it is best kept singly or in mated pairs; but some claim that it will cohabit with other clownfish varieties if they introduced at the same time. It is easy to breed; the fry can be fed on baby brine shrimp and rotifers.

The Tomato Clownfish can be territorial with other fish that approach their space in the tank. They may also scrap with other clownfish species in the same tank and for this reason it is advisable to only keep one species in your tank. If you have an extremely large tank you may be able to keep more than one clown species in your aquarium. They may also fight with other tomato clownfish in the same tank.

General Size Specifications: The Tomato Clownfish can grow to 14 cm in length , however the female is usually larger than the male.

Lifespan: They have a life span of about 6 to 8 years.

Feeding and Diet: The Tomato Clownfish or Red Clownfish is generally easy to keep. It feed all kinds of live, frozen, and flake foods. Best to feed small amounts several times a day. In a reef situation they dont really need to be fed very often at all.
