The Fire Clownfish is a member of the Tomato Complex. Although juveniles have white lines on their heads, the adults completely lack a head bar. As they mature these fish will develop a dark saddle on each side of the body.

Fire Clownfish are bold fish that rarely tolerate others invading their home territory or anemone. They are extremely hardy and reach a maximum size of around 4 inches when full grown.

This species is found in the Indian Ocean and their nest size can range from 300 – 500 eggs.
