The Tomato Clownfish is commonly known as the Tomato Anemonefish, Bridled Clownfish or Red Clownfish. It takes shelter in anemones and protects itself from predators without being stung or eaten. With its beautiful colored pattern, the Tomato Clownfish makes a beautiful addition to any tank. The female Tomato Clownfish is significantly bigger than the male Tomato Clownfish and is blackish on the sides of the body, while the snout and belly are red. The Tomato Clownfish should be kept in a tank not less than 20 gallons along with plenty of hiding places. We recommend you to keep live rocks to encourage the growth of algae on it so that the Tomato Clownfish can graze over it in between their meals. It is best to be kept in pairs or a true mated pair. Provide the Tomato Clownfish with a varied and nutritious diet that includes meaty foods as well as algae based food. Feeding should be done 2-3 times a day for its continued good health. The Tomato Clownfish reaches a maximum size of 3 « inches in an aquarium, and with a somewhat peaceful temperament it does not bother any corals and makes a very safe species for a reef aquarium. Since it is easy to handle and care for, it is a very good choice for a beginner aquarist. Make sure not to house the Tomato Clownfish with any shy or passive feeding fish, it tends to be somewhat territorial and aggressive with smaller and more docile fish as it gets matures. Tomato clowns are born as males and when needed it changes into a female. The Tomato Clownfish thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4.
