Tomato Clownfish – Amphiprion frenatus
Care: Easy -moderate (may become terrirorial)
Reef safe: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 30 gallons
A staple of the saltwater aquarist hobby, the Tomato Clownfish is recognized by a single stripe just behind the eye. They can reach a size of 5 inches and should do well in a community aquarium, providing there is enough space and there are no other clownfish species as tank mates. Tomato Clownfish can become territorial and they will fight with other clownfish species and each other. It’s best to keep 1 per tank or a pair. Typical of all clownfish species, they are relatively easy to care for and do not require any special treatment.
Tomato Clownfish don’t need an anemone to thrive, however a few of the more common anemones found with Tomato Clowns include the Bubble Tip Anemone and Carpet Anemone. Provide a varied diet consisting of flakes, frozen Mysis shrimp, pellets, etc.
