Tomato Clownfish

Tomato Clownfish
Tomato Clown, (Brevoort, 1856)
Amphiprion fenatus

Native to: Western Pacific: Gulf of Thailand to southwestern Palau, north to southern Japan, south to Java, Indonesia(fishbase.org)

Max Length:5.5″ (14cm)

Description: These colorful fish often host in anemones(such as the Bubbletip and Leathery Sea Anemones) in the wild, but do not require them for survival in captivity. They can become very territorial defending their homes from other fish who may try to take them and will not tolerate the presence of other anemone fish.

Feeding: These fish will eagerly take a wide range of foods. A mixed diet of both high quality pellet food and formulated frozen foods is recommended for long term health.

Special Notes: In captivity, these fish will often attempt to host in corals when anemones are not present. This can sometimes irritate corals and should be carefully monitored especially when large polyp stony corals are introduced.
