Clownfish are among the most popular saltwater fish, for obvious reasons. Averaging around three inches and known for their bright white stripes and colorful bodies, this group of fish instantly adds a pop of color to your tank. They are also extremely hardy, and should be purchased in small groups consisting of one species, introducing them to the aquarium simultaneously.
The Tomato Clownfish, also known as the Bridled Clownfish or Red Clownfish, 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.
