Clownfish - Tomato Clownfish



Tomato Clownfish

Bold and colorful, the Tomato Clownfish is extremely hardy. It can also prove to be very belligerent when it begins to mature, striking out as a peaceful tank-mate, especially with other clownfish. The Tomato Clownfish should be kept singly or in mated pairs; never house with other clownfish. Associates with (hosts) with Bubble tip Anenomes and Leathery Sea Anenomes, although they will thrive without the Anenomes.

Ideal for reef aquarium. On Occasion, may wallow in the polyps of a LPS coral, which can irritate them and cause them to close. Feed a varied diet (2x daily) including meaty food items such as frozen sysid shrimp, enriched brine shrimp as well as frozen or flake preparations for herbivores.
