Tomato Clownfish

As the name implies, this popular and beautiful fish has the bright red color of a ripe tomato. This is one of the larger species of clownfish and is very hardy making it a good beginner fish. An interesting fact is that Tomato Clownfish have two white vertical body stripes when they are early juvenile fish. As they grow they lose one of their body stripes and end up with only one vertical white bar right by their operculum (gill cover). There is a big size difference between males and females for this species, and if you buy a large and a small fish you will be able to establish a pair with the large fish becoming the female and the smaller a male. Sometimes Tomato Clownfish can be confused with the Cinnamon Clownfish (Amphriprion melanopus). However, Cinnamon Clownfish typically have a wider headband and black pelvic and anal fins.
