The Tomato Clownfish, also known as the is found throughout the Pacific, almost always in association with an anemone such as Bubbletip Sea Anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor). The Tomato Clownfish has a wider distribution than the Fire Clown, which is usually restricted to the Indo-Pacific reefs. It has also been known to use coral as a host in the absence of an anemone. Captive-Bred Tomato clowns are usually darker in coloration to their wild counterparts, but as the fish matures, it will lighten to a nice red/orange coloration. Juveniles have three white bands, and black pectoral fins, that gradually dissapear as the fish matures.
The Tomato Clownfish is a bright orange-red with one white vertical stripe behind the eyes. It can attain a length of 5 inches, but it usually reaches a maximum of 3.5 inches in an aquarium.
