Tomato Clownfish (Amphiprion frenatus) Care
The Tomato Clownfish, Amphiprion frenatus, is also known as Tomato Anemonefish. These fish come from the Western Pacific Ocean. It has an orangish-red body that fades to black and an orange face, caudal, pectoral, anal and dorsal fins, and an orange tail. There is a white vertical band behind the head.
Clownfish are omnivores and require a diet rich in both meaty and plant foods, such as mysis and brine shrimp, marine algae, and flake food. They love their food and may be aggressive when it comes to sharing with other tankmates.
The Fiji Tomato Clownfish can grow to be about 5″ and can be housed in aquariums as small as 30 gallons. These clownfish are hardy and semi-aggressive depending on the fish and the tank environment. These are one of the few clownfish that can be aggressive and hold their own against larger fish in a FOWLR tank.
These fish are reef safe and will not bother coral or invertebrates.
